The lightweight comedy remains undemanding, but offers some droll Brit humor that might satisfy the Anglophiles.

Audience Reviews for Relative Values


Cute movie. Definitely a Julie Andrews G-rated nice movie..

Minor but pleasing comedy immeasureably uplifted by the participation of Julie Andrews, Colin Firth and Sophie Thompson. Julie uses her regal graciousness to fine comic effect while Sophie does her wonderful mousey bit before letting rip with a full on tongue lashing. Colin's part is small but he offers humorously urbane asides. Stephen Fry is also most enjoyable as the dependable butler. As the movie star couple though Jeanne Tripplehorn and William Baldwin are out of their depth with these pros.
