Just plain fun - SPOILERS
1 October 2004 | by (El Cajon, California) – See all my reviews

This movie is not an exercise in deep drama. It's just a fun romantic movie that the actors could probably do standing on their heads.

Liam(Robson Green) is a tabloid journalist who is forced by his boss to find something personally damaging on the new Prime Minister, Laura Bowden(Caroline Goodall) who happens to be a woman. Liam doesn't use his real name. He calls himself Harry Fletcher and he, by using his friend Ivan(Michael Maloney) insinuates himself into the inner sanctum of the Prime Ministers staff. Using charm, he works his way closer and closer to the Prime Minister and eventually gets her alone, by playing to her need for privacy and her loneliness.

Liam's boss, Jane(Keeley Hawes), who happens to be Liam's ex-wife, is ecstatic. But she doesn't know how far Liam has penetrated the staff who Liam's 'source' is. Laura's Chief of Staff, Benedict(Peter Firth) discovers the affair and with the help of his crew: Michelle(Katy Murphy), Ali(Mark Bannerman) and Max(Aisling O'Sullivan) moves desperately to cover up the evidence. After several rendezvous with Laura, Liam discovers a damaging secret that could destroy Laura's political career forever. And it is now that he realizes that he is in love with Laura. Ivan gets hysterical after hearing this news, because he had always teased Liam of being an unprincipled jerk. What will Liam do? Will he print the story or not?

Of course, Laura finds out who Liam really is and they part company. But what is meant to be always finds a way.

This is a light, funny movie. No strenuous brain work needed. Just relax and enjoy, I did.
