First, a little background of myself - I'm an U.S. Air Force officer, with background in both physical sciences & project management. I tend to steer towards movies that either make me think, or invoke emotional responses (interpret at will). I also gravitate toward movies that have fantastic soundtracks.

I first sought this movie out because my wife enjoys cute love movies, and because Julia Stiles plays roles in love stories quite well. The premise itself is a cute one - two people who are made for each other question their lifelong chosen destinies. It touches topics such as class (rich vs. poor), values (working for every penny vs. being spoiled), destiny (pre-destined vs. taking the bull by the horns), to name a few.

I shed tears as I watched this movie with my wife. Not because it's depressing, but because the movie strongly reminded me how lucky I am to be married to my wife, and how a combination of perfect timing, maturity, and perspective got me to recognize true love at the right time in my life. In essence, the movie reminded me how my wife (just a friend @ point of enlightenment) saved me from pursuing an insular, safe life.

Ok enough about my runin with Kleenex -

You can easily watch this with teenagers (most boys won't sit still for this movie). It reinforces the notion that true love can be had for those who are willing to accept it. In short, it's a cheery movie you'd want to have out for viewing, when you have friends/family over for the weekend.

Miranda Richardson and James Fox play the role of queen & king quite nicely. They create a good level of tension with the prince, displaying tension that just begs to be resolved before the movie ends.

Wisconsin-born Paige Morgan (Julia Stiles) thinks boys are a distraction. In fact, she never dates, preferring to keep her mind on her pre-med college studies: she's worked hard for everything she's got, having grown up poor. Prince Edvard "Eddie" of Denmark (Luke Mably) has the opposite problem: he has grown up surrounded by wealth and privilege (having been groomed since birth to become the next ruler of his country). Only thing is: he's not ready for the responsibility! The Prince rebels against his parent's upbringing, deciding to go to America to meet girls.
Along with his trusty servant/bodyguard Soren (Ben Miller), the Prince enrolls as a student at a Wisconsin college; they arrive and immediately set off to the local hangout to find some of these Wisconsin girls. It is there that Eddie runs into Paige, who is working; she dislikes him from the start, as he acts as less than a gentleman to her. When Eddie pairs up with her as her lab partner the next day in class, she's not about to change her mind about him...after all, he's just a rich playboy. Isn't he?
Although Eddie started off with Paige on the wrong foot, he quickly realizes that she is the girl for him: the ONLY girl for him. He apologizes for his earlier behavior and the two become friends, and then something more. But when Paige discovers that her Eddie is actually Prince Edvard Valdemar Dangaard, soon to be 51st ruler of Denmark, she is understandably upset that he lied to her...but will she forgive him? And if she does, will the Prince be able to convince his parents to accept a poor Wisconsin girl as the future queen of Denmark?

This movie is a particular favorite of mine. Equal part comedy, romance and drama the movie features some wonderful performances (especially from the supporting cast) and enough light-hearted air to stop the drama from being too overbearing.

The movie centers around the romance between a Danish prince and a medical student at the University of Wisconsin.

Seems the Danish prince (Edward) is a little restless and (in an apparent reference to the antics of Britain's Princes William and Harry) is feeling the pressure of the expectations lofted upon him and engaging in car races and dalliances with a number of girls.

Following a particularly embarrassing incident and in the belief that American girls are wild and exhibitionist, Edward persuades his parents to allow him to attend classes in Wisconsin. His intentions are however hardly noble. In fact his persistence in visiting America's Dairyland comes from a television commercial for one of those Girls Gone Wild-type videos that gives Edward the impression that Wisconsin girls are easy - boy is he in for a shock.

It's not long after arriving at Wisconsin that he realizes that the campus is not populated entirely by free-wheeling party girls and in fact the one girl who catches his eye in particular is a very studious medical student (played with warmth and charm by Julia Stiles).

There is a real wicked streak of comedy in here, mostly supplied by the supporting characters such as Edward's bemused and disdainful man servant or his sloth-some roommate. But, what this movie does best is romantic comedy.

Of particular joy is watching Edward grow into the responsibilities of being a future King as his father (played by the amazing James Fox) slips further into decline.

For those who enjoyed movies such as "Boys and Girls" or "Down to You" (which also featured Stiles) then this is a movie you will enjoy. It's warm, charming and uplifting.
