Like o'mgod! Like what a silly story!
26 May 2004 | by (st. pete, fl usa) – See all my reviews

If my memory serves me right, this is a TV-movie about a family that winds up getting a house on an island that is on the St Lawerence River between Canada and the United States. Somehow, and don't ask me how, both countries missed this island and didn't claim it. Now the family sees this as their own country. The father of course names himself the king, his wife the queen, and so on.

The US and Canada find out about the error and send representatives to the new island country to make them their allies. They offer gifts and money to get them to become a part of their country. I really don't remember how this ended only that it was rather a silly story and it had John Femia(Marshall) and Sarah Jessica Parker(Patty) from the "Square Pegs" TV series.
