A light comedy romance with interesting clash of cultural differences
This light comedy romance has the interesting clash of cultural differences and an easy to understand authentic Brazilian actress portraying a Brazilian character (though her presence in American films has been extremely limited). Her physical appearance doesn't quite rise to the level of extremely gorgeous or beautiful like those of Salma Heyak or Jennifer Lopez., at least as she was made up for this film. Dean Cain performs as he usually does with typical confidence. Both principles offer up a nice screen presence. The storyline is slightly different from many romantic comedies though nothing like a break out. All the supporting cast blend well into the movie's plot and make nice contributions of their own. An entertaining and likeable movie. For a similar contrast see Bottle Shock (2008) that focuses on wine and romance along with a bit of English/French/British tone or a romantic drama Walk in the Clouds (1995) with Keanu Reeves who portrays a returning soldier who impersonates a fiancée so that a woman he just met wouldn't have to face humiliation in front of her father as she returns home.
