Did You Know?


Lady Victoria's character was loosely based on Princess Stephanie of Monaco. See more »


When Nick shows up dressed per the invitation, he is let in through the "dog room". As they walk in, that inside door is left open. He's inside about 2-3 minutes until he realizes what's up and then starts to sneak out, but now the dog room is full with the inner door closed. Who did this, and when? Those dogs weren't around anywhere before then. See more »

Why betraying one's own country for a girl?
20 July 2001 | by (Lido di Venezia) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies which makes you think: would Hulk " The real American " Hogan have done the same? Frankly I don't think so and he'd have been right. I'm Italian, I cannot go proud of my country for many reasons, but I wouldn't have rowed for another team (The French, for example), simply because I'm in love with Juliette Binoche. Besides the protagonist doesn't fall in love desire with a British girl at the end of the movie but with a fellow countrywoman, so why rowing against Yale. As far as acting is concerned, well, all the players act very poorly. And then , you know, I hated that "Dead poets society " atmosphere. In fact that's another movie I hate.
