WHAT A GIRL WANTS (2003) GO! 7.30PM, G, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Once-promis­ing teen star Amanda Bynes (above, She’s the­Man) glows in this “girls’ own” ad­ven­ture, play­ing an ex­citable New York teen who trav­els to Lon­don to track down her fa­ther (Colin Firth), dis­cov­er­ing him to be a very im­por­tant (and very Bri­tish) aris­to­crat. As she tries to in­gra­ti­ate her­self into high so­ci­ety and catch up on lost time with her dad, she quickly learns her wild ways are ruf­fling quite a few stuffy English feath­ers. Fa­mil­iar cul­ture-clash gags abound, but Bynes’ in­fec­tious en­ergy and bubbly per­sona will leave young­sters more than sat­is­fied. ★★✩
