Fun-loving mystery for romance fans

Author: Amy Adler from Toledo, Ohio
22 September 2004

Chris Nelson (Kim Cattrall) meets Sean (Robert Hays) at the library and a relationship flourishes quickly. Telling Sean she is a travel agent, they marry and set off on their honeymoon. However, Chris has recently resigned her job as a jet-hopping government agent and she is cornered into one last assignment on her wedding trip. Naturally, Sean is in the dark and becomes bewildered by the strange happenings swirling around him. Will the truth come out?

Yes, this movie is somewhat silly in plot and dialogue. Even the foreign setting of the film yields only nondescript scenery. The costumes and supporting cast are similarly bland, except for the lovely Leigh Taylor-Young. Yet, the two attractive and expressive stars keep it all rolling. Fans of light, humorous romance will find this movie quite palatable. Others, however, may tire of the storyline before its conclusion.

Wholesome, funny spy comedy.

Author: SanDiego

Wholesome Disneyesque comedy about a female spy (who had thought she had retired) and her new husband (who had thought she was a travel agent). Sort of like TV's "Scarecrow and Mrs. King," and "Moonlighting." Kim Cattral (people either love her or can't stand her but) and Robert Hays ("Airplane") make a great couple and I had wished this had warranted sequels. If you are a fan of "Mannequin" try this film as well.

Enjoyable Family Film

7/10

This is an enjoyable family film with the 'retired spy' plot line. Much like true lies in reverse the husband finds out he has married a 'retired' spy. Shockingly, to her and her husband, she is on another case when she intended to be honeymooning. Fun for the whole family, a timeless piece.

I was there...

3/10

"Honeymoon Academy" was one of my first storyboarding jobs. I remember being in the office when the producer received a call from Spain announcing that Paul Reiser (the original lead) had wrecked his leg. I believe he fell on the steps of the church during the wedding sequence. Instant chaos...the movie had a slim budget and a very short shooting schedule. They couldn't wait for Reiser to heal...they had to dig up a new leading man, fly him to Spain, and shoot everything from the beginning. Somehow they made it.

I no longer remember the original title of the movie, but it wasn't "Honeymoon Academy." After its release we all wondered where the title came from. It had nothing to do with the story.
