Monte Carlo movie scene

Leighton Meester (l.), Selena Gomez (ctr.) and Katie Cassidy step out on the way to Monte Carlo.

Actress and pop star Selena Gomez (Ramona and Beezus) stars in Monte Carlo, a romantic comedy-adventure movie about a trio of friends who make front page headlines when a dream trip turns into a case of mistaken identity.

Gomez plays Grace, a high-spirited high school graduate looking forward to a vacation in Paris with her best friend Emma (Katie Cassidy, TV’s Melrose Place) and stepsister Meg (Leighton Meester, TV’s Gossip Girl). Just as the trip is taking a turn for the worse, Grace is mistaken for a wealthy socialist and the girls are whisked away to Monte Carlo for a week of glitz, glam and the kind of fun that those who are fortunate enough to get whisked away to Monte Carlo usually have.

Directed and co-written by Thomas Bezucha (The Family Stone), Monte Carlo opened wide in theaters in early July 2011 and has since grossed $22 million at the domestic box office.
