Storyline

Lord James Browning Senior co-hosts on his grand greater London estate teams of high-school students to the Model U.N. competition, where each 'represents' another country then their own, mostly as in the national selections. Lord James Junior is supposed to win as preparation to succeed his father as real diplomat, but his personal priority shifts to a crush on a member of unorthodox US team, which came just for fun.

Not Bad
5 March 2003 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This film was a bit of a change to the twins' usual charade of marketing-infested "hey we don't care, we're rich!" junk. It certainly stands out from others I've watched like When in Rome and Holiday in the Sun.

It didn't seem fake at all, most stuff that they do they try to pull it off like it's a normal thing, but most teens don't go around in limousines and private jets. This one was believable, the whole gang looked like actual tourists and took cabs all over the joint. The only thing that really didn't seem right at all was one of the actors had the most fake and put on British accent I have ever heard. Being directed by Craig Shapiro and because I've seen Our Lips Are Sealed too, there's a couple traits in there that I knew what was going to happen before the whole scene had finished. Although I don't blame them, I'm not too bright on cockney rhyming slang either.

Overall, it's predictable, it's funny in places, and it has a happy ending.

All the things a romantic comedy should be.
