Stephanie Beacham!!!
7 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Stephanie Beacham is the best thing in this movie, hands down, but you've got to hand it to a cast that can hold their own acting with her. She is a supreme goddess, and one of the most underrated actresses around. This is the first time I think I've ever seen her do comedy, and she does not disappoint as the always gorgeous Susan Ward's meddling mother. Her misinterpreting of a Japanese businessman's advances are priceless. Overall, I give this film high marks for making me laugh repeatedly. I find that happening less and less these days when I watch "comedies." There are a lot of good people in the cast. There's kind of an old fashioned screwball feel to the proceedings, and it even had a wonderful original (I think) score that reminded me a bit of Henry Mancini's work for Blake Edwards. I appreciate a romantic comedy that doesn't cram all kinds of pop songs in and just lets the music augment the action on the screen.

I have but one complaint -- why isn't Stephanie Beacham listed on the front of the DVD??? Shame on the filmmakers/distributors for not advertising her front and center! On the other hand, I say "Bravo" to the filmmakers for casting her in a great role. She is a total delight in a fun new spin on an Oscar Wilde classic.
