You know how even when you watch a cheesy movie, you can work with it because somehow, even with the poor acting and poor lines, the senario and the handsome guy make you enjoy it when he finally takes her in his arms? At least there is that toe curling kiss right? Yeah this doesn't even have that. In fact, this show was all build up with no delivery. It COULD have been good. It starts out ok but then completely unravels into nonsense. It vacillates from too light to too dark with no rhyme or reason. She meets a guy who comes across as a total loser and just attaches herself to him without any commitment from him. He is a billionaire who can't afford a razor and she is a damaged woman (her history is TOO dark for a rom-com) with an annoying lisp.

We never see any real catalyst for change in either of them so much as we see things like "weeks later" on the screen and we're supposed to understand that means the relationship has progressed, even though he claims from the beginning that he is leaving and gives her little more than a there there when she clings to him "I hate to think of you leaving.I love you". By the time this thing ended I felt so robbed of romance. I have never felt more apathetic towards a couple. can't recommend this one

The premise of this film is that a very rich Italian businessman promises his dying father he will spend one month away from home with no money. During the month, the former playboy meets the widow of an Army veteran and falls in love. The story is a fairly standard rich boy meets poor girl who doesn't know he's rich. There are a number of interesting characters in the movie and most of the scenes are fairly family-friendly. That being said, there is very poor character and plot development. Most of the things you would hope to see develop over the course of the movie are sort of simply taken for granted and a number of story lines either end up having nothing to do with the story in the end or sort of fall apart. I felt like I could see the chemistry between the main characters but there was little in the actual story to suggest how they could have ended up together as they did. They were in love after two hours of their first date and were soul mates within a week or two. As nice as the movie is, it could have been so much more. It's a watchable, if not memorable movie, but with a little better character development, it could have been a real gem.

The film was predictable without being tiresome, and the characters were convincing. Naturally, I anticipated a happy ending, but liked some of the embellishments which made the individuals "people" one could like or dislike thoroughly. There were some cute bits that I won't spoil for other viewers by revealing. It is fun to see beauty and beautiful people and places, too.

I wanted to like this so much. I wasted an entire evening hoping it would get better, nothing, nada, it was pretty awful. The idea was good and could have been a great movie but it missed on every point. The dialogue was horrid, my 8 year old grandson could have written better lines. The plot never developed into anything believable. The acting was worse than a junior high school play. Ione Skye was awful. Victor Aflieri wasn't bad but he was surrounded by weak, stilted actors who tried hard, maybe too hard to make this into something watchable. I really wish it had been a great movie but alas it was one of the worse movies I have ever seen.

Enjoyed watching this movie. Had downloaded it to my Kindle to watch while traveling. It provided good light-hearted entertainment with a happy ending, which is what I was looking for. The plot was not totally unique, but it had a few different plot twists and turns for enhancement.

This was a really nice romantic movie. The acting and story was really good and the lead male actor was very good looking and had a nice speaking voice. I really enjoyed this movie and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes romantic movies.

I liked the premise of rich guy pretending to be a pauper and finding good people and love in the process but the screen play was awful. The acting and characters were flat. The way he originally met the girl was kind of stupid- I couldn't sleep so I thought I would go out to the living room and wake up a total stranger sleeping on the couch to talk. Really? Having him eat voraciously ONCE would have been enough. And what happened to his promise to his dad of going 30 days [SPOILER ALERT!] when he ends up revealing himself to save his company? He ended up sacrificing NOTHING for trying to keep the promise, which he broke with impunity. And why exactly was he in such a hurry go back to California?

Ione Skye's performance in this film is superb. A cute modern day romantic tale. I would recommend it to anyone.

This was a great idea for a movie, but they totally messed it up along the way! The billionaire man, who takes a break from his wealth & fame for a month in response to his dying father's request, did NOT actually learn the lesson is father was hoping he'd learn. But they move forward with the movie as if he experiences some fantastic epiphany! One bit that absolutely ruined this movie for me (spoiler warning) was when the "sweet girl" he is falling in love with tells off her boss, using the "F" word! Not so sweet after all, but it seems to endear him to her! It went downhill from there! Very ridiculous events that would never, could never happen! That's an hour and half I will never get back again! Should have spent that time washing my cat!

Our hero, a billionaire, when his father is dieing, promises him that he will spend one month, 30 days, far away, with practically nothing, and with nobody knowing who he is. Along the way, he learns a lot about himself.

When he is treated badly by one employer, he learns to be generous with his employees back home, secretly.

When strangers are compassionate to him, he learns compassion.

When he treats a woman as his equal, he learns that it is possible to never treat women as objects again.

This is a wonderful movie, and it is one that I will watch again next year. It is that good. I highly recommend this movie to you.
