Barely Bearable
30 June 2006 | by (Syracuse Utah) – See all my reviews

The story takes place on a Caribbean Island ruled over by the Commandante, a fifth generation dictator. His beautiful, but sheltered daughter dreams of what life would be like outside of the diamond leash she is on. When she accidentally hits a village boy with her car she soon finds herself falling in love and questioning if she is making the right decisions to marry the man her father has chosen. I rented this film and it sounded somewhat interesting but I was severely disappointed. While the film making was well done for the most part the story itself was very formulaic and a paint by the numbers. I felt that any crew fresh out of film school could have slapped this together and probably have done a better job. So if you are into prince and the pauper romantic comedies mixed with a little bit of fantasy you'll enjoy it, otherwise pick another film.
