But when a man claims that he can translate her dialect, it is understood that the woman is a princess from a far away land. She is then welcomed by a family of haughty aristocrats that only wants to heighten their prestige. However, the local reporter is not at all convinced she is what she claims to be and investigates.

Charming romantic comedy.
9 November 2001 | by (New Orleans, La.) – See all my reviews

Phoebe Cates is irresistible as Princess Caraboo. Kevin Kline is great fun as Frixos and I liked Stephen Rea as Gutch. This was a delightful and refreshing film. It's not easy to find in video stores, but ask for it. Films that are fun for the whole family are rare, but this is one.
