A Prince learns how to be a Prince Charming
29 August 2006 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Robin Prince (Mark Harmon) believes the world is his oyster. He owns and operates a pool cleaning business, which he loves. After all, not only does he get to work in the sun, he has access to some of the rich but desperate housewives of Bel Air. They certainly do love their pool man and he returns the affection. In his off hours, Robin hangs out with his best buds and romances single women, too. However, he is getting to be a bit old for the perpetual surfer image he has concocted. And, his head turns counterclockwise when he meets lovely Jamie (Kirstie Alley), a talented artist with scruples. What will be ultimately important to him, his lifestyle or his great affection for Jamie? This movie has some nice statements to make about choices and changes. Not all men will turn into gentlemen, it's true, but stories about the ones who do are very welcome. Harmon and Alley are lovely and humorous folks and add much to the film's enjoyment. Vaughn does a good job as a loathsome businessman. The California setting is utterly gorgeous and so are the costumes. Jamie's artwork is also quite stunning. If you think you've seen every romantic drama out there but have missed this one, do take time to view it. Although it was made nearly 20 years ago, its themes are as fresh as daisies and its tale of romance absolutely winning.
