At a Wisconsin university, local farmer's daughter Paige Morgan is intrigued by odd Danish exchange student Edvard 'Eddie', who is ignorant of many aspects of daily life, such as all domestic chores (no wonder, he's the incognito heir to the royal throne of Denmark, his roommate Soren a court minder) but well versed in other matters, such as Shakespeare. They become friends; encouraged by her best friend to invite him to the Morgan family farm. He not only makes a good impression on her parents and brothers but triumphs in the rustic lawnmower race. Only after some paparazzi track Edvard down to film them kissing and he has returned home because the king is gravely ill does Paige realize he may be her true love, and flies to Copenhagen. Initially, the court, especially queen Rosalind, opposes a commoner bride, but Edvard sticks to his guns before accepting to succeed his abdicating father.

Sorry - this did very little for me. As a fan of this genre I am well aware of what to expect in terms of plot and though sometimes a change in this routine is interesting, I for one am happy that I know more or less exactly the 'win, lose, win' scenario. If I am disappointed it is often in the lack of opportunity to follow the leads once they are consolidated as a pair. In that respect this movie fails miserably. You are taken along a scarcely credible plot (OK that's often fine) and then just when emotionally you are looking for a little bit of 'depth' to allow you to blend with the movie it literally drops you without warning. It's as though they suddenly realised they needed to have an ending and then rushed it and in doing so they wasted the opportunity to give the movie a heart. Very rare for me to be moved to comment these days and even rarer for comments to be so negative, I suppose you could say that at least this very very lightweight effort achieved that.
