It's certainly not high cinema, but every so often, I feel the urge to see this movie. I'm a fan of Tim Dalton and Fran Drescher, FWIW.

I think it's just a good mindless rom-com with some amazing scenery involved (and Timothy Dalton).

Liked it a lot as a kid, revisited it and it's still pretty good. Dalton is fantastic, really injects some much needed acting into the film.

Fran Drescher was really funny and her timing and facial expressions are on point. Light hearted and a fun watch

A cute adaptation of the story. Funny at times.

A fairytale gone horribly wrong.

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.

This is a great retelling of the traditional Beauty and the Beast story. I really could have done without Drescher's ridiculous laugh through the whole thing though.

"The Nanny" with very minor alterations and sadly the sitcom is often funnier

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.

Reminds me of the sound of music, really great fun to watch and so romantic!

For most it's either love it or hate it. For me I was not disappointed, as I expected something hilarious out from Drescher's sleeve.

Manages to be sweet and likable, largely because Kwapis directs the actors well and treats the sub-Lubitsch material as if he actually believed in it.

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.

Fran Drescher and Timothy Dalton? What an odd couple, but two of my favourite actors. Overall, it didn't work, but I'm really glad I saw it.

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.
