Before the US release of the film, print advertisements were altered to remove the peace sign that Bynes was giving in the poster. A rep for Warner Bros. explained '"In a time of war, we made a slight alteration so that we could avoid any potential political statement in a completely nonpolitical film." See more »
During Henry's press conference near the end, there is a shot behind his head showing the entire audience. On the far wall opposite Henry, two Union Jack flags are hung vertically. The one on the right is hung upside down. The proper way to hang the flag dictates that the thick white stripe in the upper left-hand corner is on top of the smaller red stripe, as correctly seen on the flag on the left. See more »
The folks banging this movie have to get real. It's about an average girl (Bynes) who gets to meet her dad, who's in the process of running for major political office in England. It's not about Yankee superiority over the Brits (sheesh!), it's a simple fantasy about the effect a teenage girl has on her once-stuffy dad in stuffy society. If you're politically offended by this movie, imagine Amanda as a carefree Portugese girl visiting her long-lost dad, a member of U.S. Congress from Massachusetts, and chill out. That being said, Amanda Bynes is a cool and attractive leading lady/girl and plays very well with the other characters in this film. It's all been done millions of times before, and it's not Oscar material, but it was a pleasant diversion for me.
