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 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.
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.
"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.
Yeah..lol..this film was just showing on the Hallmark channel...I found it really disappointing :( but Kim Cattrall is so bootyful you can forgive the film its minor faults like being more boring than watching paint dry :)
