slight story ....Molly looks great!
3 June 2003 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Molly Ringwald stars as Carrie, a transplanted American living in London. One day at the bus stop, an accountant for a large company goes absolutely gaga for her. He pursues, he wins her heart. By happenstance, the owner of the company where the accountant works offers the couple a wedding and honeymoon in the south of France. All goes very well until the husband gets attached to the casinos and leaves Carrie to fend for herself. Will the honeymoon end up destroying the marriage? The execution of this slight story is just adequate, resulting in a movie that is pleasant but hardly noteworthy. Molly Ringwald, however, has never appeared more beautiful or charming and her costumes are first-rate. Robert Lindsay gives an engaging performance as the accountant. On a night when the television schedule is disappointing, this film can provide an evening's diversion.
