A charming film. A simple story, well-crafted with strong performances from Colin Firth and Amanda Bynes. It's nothing deep but it doesn't pretend to be. It's definitely one for the ladies what with not one but two attractive guys. Of course the picture it presents of this country and the British is completely stereotypical but it doesn't spoil the film. It's so nice to see a film which doesn't rely on bad language or crude comedy to attract the teenage market. For me it ticks all the boxes.

This films is sooooo nice.

Daphne Reynolds (Amanda Bynes) lives in Chinatown New York with her mum Libby (Kelly Preston). She has never seen her father.

One day she leaves her mum to go find her father. He is a british politican who is running for office.

She finds him, Henry (Colin Firth) is shocked to know he has a daughter.

Daphne has to try and fit in and be ladylike so that her father doesnt lose his votes.

But she stills has to be herself.

A very good film, girly film. At the end, it's a very touching scene with daphne and her father.

A good watch

If you saw the title of this film and a picture of the film you would think that this was going to be another sweet film full of sugar and for most of it it is. A teenage american girl comes to Britain in search of her father(Colin Firth)who is high in the social ladder and the last thing he needs is to find a long lost daughter, who by the way is accepted straight away without question.
One main message that came across in this film was that the British are up tight and Americans are cool and know how to get the party started. This is however not true and probably just giving the american public what they expect of us Brits! The posh, rich and living in the 18th centuary.Balls and dancing ,boat races and a rather odd bike chase happen in this fim.
Colin Firth was not meant for this role but the film had to get a big name for it to attract some interest. In a way colin should stick to what he knows best trying to win the lady instead of trying to play dad!
Overall this is in a way a bit of a girl's far off dream but if it wasn't for sugar sweet films like this and the fact that one day our mothers could come to us and say "your father is rich and lives in a massive house in the middle London" Wouldn't we do the same run away and find him and get a romance going at the same time. Ahhh.. well we can only dream!

This is entertaining fun but slightly misses the mark. I found Amanda Bynes a bit irritating at times. Would have liked to see a bit more of her mother who seemed an interesting character. Colin Firth is good, but doesn't get his portrayal of his feelings for his daughter quite right - there are a couple of occasions when it feels more like a romantic relationship, which was a bit uncomfortable for me.

This DVD was absoulutly Brilliant!

Colin Firth = Amazing

Amanda Bynes= Wonderful

Kelly Preston= Excellent

Amanda Bynes and Colin Firth star in this irresistible funny comedy.
Amanda stars as Daphne, a irrepressible American teen who impulsively jets over from the US
to meet heraristocratic father for the first time.
Determined to fit into her dad's world, Daphne stifles her vibrant personality to be the
perfect daughter, plunging into a whirl of garden parties, fashion shows and more.
Can goodintentions and proper etiquette conquer all? Not if it means Daphne must also abandon who she really is.
She's going to remain true to herself and she's going to do it with courage and style every
girl wants to see.........

This is the blurb at the back of the DVD box i got from amazon.

I would recommend this to a girl its also a good film to watch with your mum.
So mothers & daughter film (well i think so :) )

I saw this movie on the t.v on channel five and i loved it to bits
i only buy the movies i really really like of amazon.
i have bought Parent Trap (Linsay Lohan)
I have brought what a girl wants.

Hope you enjoy watching it :)
I will be suprised if u dont :)))))

A movie that runs along the lines of so many others we have seen lately. A teen movie I would even dare say. Yet 'What a girl wants' is, underneath its rather common exterior a movie that has enough depth the please even the more mature. The basic plot is nothing refreshing but entertaining none the less and when you're willing to look just a tiny bit deeper you'll be able to appreciate the subtle mockery of aristocracy and high society. Nothing much to say about the performances although I believe Colin Firth has been able to give some more depth to his character than I had originally expected.
'What a girl wants' is not exactly a must see but certainly not a waste of time.

My friend recently visited from the states and bought this movie with her. Her and her 3 daughters, my daughter and I, all sat watching this movie together. I loved it and so did the girls. Plenty of humour and for the ladies among us, the delightable Colin Firth (Darcy in Bridget Jones) graces the screen (what more could a girl want indeed!). A real feel good movie and one for a girls night in!
