12. Monte Carlo (2011)
Not a particularly great film but ‘Monte Carlo’ still works partly due to its charming leads and endearingly naive humor. It tells the story of three women who are taken away to Monte Carlo after one of them is mistaken for a British heiress. With more effort and though put into the writing, the film could have been a lot more involving but nevertheless it still comes off as incredibly entertaining watch due to its inherent charm and unpretentious take on the story. It’s funny, sweet, silly and so gorgeously adorable.
