almost creepy. not the best option for Eric Mabius as John Flemming. one of many sweet stories about the young prince and not very young princess. it is only a comfortable story in Hallmark style. nothing new, nothing complicated, nothing interesting. only he and she and the people around theme. so, not good or bad. only another occasion for Jacqueline Bisset to act old role who defines her. only strange fact is the status of son of first boyfriend of Maggie Webber for the young Flemming. it is strange and unrealistic. and, sure, far to be real moral. but it could be only an insignificant detail. a film for the fans of genre. and that is all.
