What A Girl Wants, What a Girl wants is a film starring Amanda Bynes 2003, Colin Firth, Kelly Preston and Oliver James. Dennie Gordon directed it.

The film is a remake of 1958, The Reluctant Debutante which had a screenplay by William Douglas-Home, based on his play of the same name.

The title, “What a Girl Wants,” came the eponymous Christina Aguilera, even if, paradoxically, it is not in the movie or the soundtrack.

Daphne Reynolds (Amanda Bynes) has what every girl wants. This young American has a unique style of its own, an unconventional relationship, but love with his mother Bohemia Libby (Kelly Preston) and a future full of possibilities. But despite her remarkable promise, Daphne feels incomplete and only .

She dreams of one day meeting the father she never knew the man Libby loved deeply seventeen years, but eventually left because his aristocratic family found her unsuitable. Determined to live out his fantasy of a relationship with his fictional father long absent, Daphne, on an impulse, becomes a flight to London, where she quickly discovers that her father is the high-profile politician Henry, Lord Dashwood (Colin Firth). Henry opens his life and his social calendar to the daughter he never knew existed, but Daphne’s appearance in his high society creates an uproar that threatens to undermine his political career. Not wanting to jeopardize his campaign for the upcoming election, Daphne stifles her naturally vibrant personality, reshaping itself as a good debutante and plunges into a whirlwind of British social events. But even with the support of Henry, she receives no help from his conniving fiancée or her jealous daughter, who are committed to ruining Daphne at every turn.

With the help of Ian (Oliver James), a charming musician and society-savvy local, Daphne attempts to prove that love, with etiquette, can conquer all. But Daphne soon realizes she does not like the person she becomes in the process. As much as she wants to be the daughter of his father, she realizes that it is not worth it if it cannot be herself. Although most of the time the interference Henry’s fiance influences it during his ball Debu, coldly and cruelly when she locks Daphne in a closet to prevent Henry from binding with it. She goes home, but Henry realizes how much he loves Daphne and goes looking for him. The film ends with Daphne’s mother formally marry the father of Daphne. Daphne also became Ian’s girlfriend and she goes to Oxford University so she could be near him.
