The Friday Five: Adventures in Europe

It’s totally possible to have an adventure through Europe without even leaving your couch.  Here are some of our favorite movies that will take you to Rome, Paris & beyond.

1. The Lizzie McGuire Movie
Ah, Rome.  The Eternal City.  The land where they invented spaghetti. Whatever you want to call it, this movie is like taking a tour through the city.  And no trip to Rome is complete without running into an Italian pop star who wants you to pose as his singing parter who’s like totally your twin and perform at the IMVAs so you don’t loose your record deal, right?

2. Monte Carlo
Sure, it’s basically the same plot as The Lizzie McGuire Movie.  But this one takes place in Paris, and of course Monte Carlo.  And stars Selena Gomez, Katie Cassidy, Leighton Meester, and some really well cast male leads.  Beau-jo-lais, y’all.

3. The Cheetah Girls 2
Sometimes you gotta strut down those streets and let Barcelona know the Cheetahs have arrived.  The Cheetah Girls travel to Spain to compete in a talent show, almost get disqualified, meet some cute boys, and end up having a Cheetah-licious summer!

4. Chasing Liberty
Mandy Moore goes everywhere from Prague to Venice and back with Matthew Goode.  Sure she may be on the run from her secret service body guards, but a romantic gondola ride never hurt anybody!

5. What A Girl Wants
Amanda Bynes goes to London to find her father, Colin Firth and meets a cute British boy, who also happens to be a musician.  Believe it or not, no Christina Aguilera songs are in this movie, despite the title.  (Didn’t you just read the title to the tune of “What A Girl Wants?”  Us too.)
