This film fails not because of it's star (who's simply playing herself) but because there's simply no getting around the fact that this is a ripoff of "The Nanny" premise, plain and simple. But it's not as much fun as the sitcom. This one's for hardcore Fran Drescher fans only.
Only a 17% rating surprises me. This is not brilliant cinema, but as far as entertainment value, I found it refreshingly likable and kept my attention-and in no way can call myself a Fran Dresher fan. Filmed in the splendor only old Eurpoe can provide, it is visually interesting and beautiful. Cobined with likeable characters and a reasonable but predicable plot, i am not screaming for 90 minutes of my life back at the end. I give it an A simply becuase it was fun.
A beautician is mistaken for a teacher and is hired on the spot to groom the children of an Eastern European dictator with the usual comical results. Drescher is definitely an acquired taste and her inclusion in this farce was a bad idea from the very beginning. She certainly isn't helped by a pedestrian screenplay.
Fran drescher plays a hairdresser who after a fire gets let go from her job.She then gets asked to come to another country and tutor the presidents children which she does not not how to since she is a hairdresser. Her and the president butt heads at first and she then teaches him how to be more calmer and be a gentleman and a father and still be a good president. Fran dreschers voice is kinda annoying but she she had a few good chuckles here and there. Timothy dalton was the president and the only movie I ever saw him in was in a James Bond movie and he was not too bad. I would have to say this is probably only worth one watch too but it was sort of entertaining so it was not quite a total loss.
Apart from It's Fran Drescher, who has the most irritating voice in the world, it's a fairtale storey. She's falls in love with the miserable king, who slowley turns him around into a good guy. Not too bad of a film.
