Princess Protection Program (2009)

Carter Mason (Gomez) is a high school student who works at a bait shop, and her crush ~totally~ doesn't even know she exists (this is a DCOM, people).

Carter's father heads the program, and takes Princess Rosalinda in when her kingdom is threatened. The two girls have to learn how to live together and, spoiler alert, they might just learn a little something from each other along the way.
