Loved it....
7 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was very good. The characters, the costumes... you have to like movies like this to start with in order to appreciate it. The timing on the humor was really good. The music was excellent and I would like to find the soundtrack. Miriam Stockley sings the song Secret. She performs several of the songs in the movie. She's a cross between Celine Dion and Enya. The British speak was easy enough that you could understand what they were saying. A lot of that is too much and it's hard to catch it all. There are a lot of recognizable actors in this and they all did a good job. I highly recommend this movie for just some old fashion humor in a period piece.
