Storyline

At the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Paige, a pre-med student and a farm girl from Manitowoc, meets Eddie, a fellow student from Denmark, whom she first dislikes but later accepts, likes, and loves. Paige takes Eddie to her home for the Thanksgiving weekend. Paparazzi find and photograph the couple, and Paige learns that Eddie is truly Crown Prince Edvard. Failing health causes King Haraald to abdicate in favor of Edvard, so Eddie returns to Copenhagen, then Paige follows her heart to Copenhagen, where Edvard warmly welcomes her, takes her to the castle, and introduces her to the royal family. Queen Rosalind first expresses opposition to Paige but later relents; King Haraald soon warms to her; Edvard proposes, Paige accepts, and he gives her a ring. However, Paige recalls her previous dream of going to Doctors Without Borders, so she breaks off and returns to school. Still, though, Edvard shows up at Paige's graduation and suggests an alternate plan. Written by DocRushing

Queen: Don't threaten us!

Not my cup of tea
13 March 2006 | by grahameshSee all my reviews

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.
