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.
[font=Palatino Linotype]For some odd reason, I seem to have found myself drawn to Colin Firth movies lately. I think I just like him. ;) This movie was quite delightful - a snobbish young British noble brings home an American actress to meet his family, and the matriarch (Julie Andrews) of the family must try to deal with the ensuing scandal of him marrying below (WAY below) his class. She does so beautifully, with the help of her young nephew? played by Colin Firth. The wit is purely British, and there are many quite funny moments. If you're looking for a nice humourous way to spend an evening, I'd highly recommend this one. Julie Andrews is superb... and strikingly similar to her character in [b]Princess Diaries[/b]... odd.[/font]
