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

Quotes

Soren: The chances of a relationship between yourself and Miss Paige are not promising. You two are of a completely different caliber.
Eddie: Soren, just cause she isn't royalty doesn't mean she's not important.
Soren: The higher caliber I was referring to, sir, was hers.

A cute teen comedy
4 November 2006 | by Smells_Like_CheeseSee all my reviews

My friend and I decided to rent both The Prince and Me and The Prince and Me 2, we'd watch them back to back, just for fun. We both like Julia Styles and this looked like a cute movie. Well, we're both in our 20's, so in some ways the film missed for us, I think it was more aimed at a teen audience, not to sound sexist(I'm a girl too), but more precisely, at teenage girls.

It's about a college girl, Paige, who is working so hard to get into med school and can't afford any distractions. Edvard is the Prince of Denmark and sees a commercial of "college girls gone wild in Wisconsin", he thinks that it's true and decides to take a trip to Wisconsin and meets Paige. They get off the wrong foot, since he tells her to take her top off. But they end up having a science class together and become partners, eventually, you know, they end up falling for each other. But since "Eddie" doesn't want anyone to know he's a prince, Paige finds out the hard way through the paparazzi, but she gets back with him in Denmark, where Eddie proposes and she is to be the future queen of the Denmark, but it may be too much to handle for a simple farm girl.

The Prince and Me is very predictable and very unrealistic, but I think that it was a sweet little comedy for teens. That's the crowd it was aimed for, which is cool, but for women who are older, I think that we got a few laughs and enjoyed it. The guys? Trust me, I don't think they're going to dig it.

6/10
