After the men lose the competition, they are invited to meet Her Majesty, and one of the officials says "Yes, HRH!" Which stands for His or Her Royal Highness, which could mean Charlels, Wills, Kate, Harry, etc.. BUT The Queen is Her Majesty - hence, she would be "H.M." See more »

Flat out terrific movie
26 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is a terrific movie. Clive Owen and Natasha Little are as great a couple as there is, and Helen Mirren and the rest of the cast could hardly be better. Wonderfully acted, intelligently directed, and very sweet. It's just a quiet little gem of a movie.
