What a Girl Wants

  • What a Girl Wants
  • Colin Firth, Amanda Bynes
  • Directed by Dennie Gordon

A New York teen (Amanda Bynes) leaves the mom who raised her (Kelly Preston) to find the Brit lord of a dad (a charming Colin Firth) who deserted her. It's slick girlie stuff, but the cast makes it go down easy.
