Storyline

In morte veritas. Georgia Byrd clerks at a New Orleans department store. She defers pleasure: cooks gourmet meals, eats Lean Cuisine; likes a co-worker in silence; has savings, but hasn't left Louisiana. All that changes when a CT Scan discloses she has three weeks to live. She cashes her savings and heads to Europe's Grandhotel Pupp, where Chef Didier presides. She checks into the Presidential Suite, orders everything on the menu, snowboards, and comes to the attention of the chef and the hotel's powerful American guests: a Congressman, a Senator, a retail magnate, and his mistress. She has nothing to lose, so she tells them what she thinks. Will the truth set them free? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The writers of this film are big fans of Ealing Studios comedies, and jumped at the chance to remake the original Alec Guinness film, Last Holiday (1950). Originally they intended for John Candy to play George Bird, but the project was shelved after Candy's death. It was resurrected years later when Queen Latifah's agent read the script, and contacted the writers about rewriting the story for a woman in the lead. See more »

Very good romantic comedy, funny from beginning to end.
16 January 2006 | by drcsdeSee all my reviews

I went to see this movie because i had already seen all the other movies playing in the theater and i was actually very surprised with how good this movie was! i really enjoyed it, i enjoyed the script, the story, the acting, the characters and although it was semi predictable as is any romantic comedy, it definitely kept me on my toes, i really enjoyed it. Queen Latifah definitely knows how to pick a good script. I gave the movie an 8 out of 10 because although it's not particularly my type of movie, i really did enjoy it.

I recommend taking the whole family to see this one, or a date, it would even be a fun movie to take your mom to go see!

One thing i suggest, don't go into this movie hungry because there is a lot of delicious looking food in it. My mouth was watering the entire time.
