Storyline

Ben, a wannabe filmmaker marooned outside the Cannes Film Festival's charmed circle of power and influence, pretends to be a yacht-owning big producer to impress hopeful actress Laura, the woman of his dreams. She responds to the idealistic romantic she sees in him, but is less enamoured of his attempts to play the big shot. By the time he finally gets her on "his" yacht he might just be winning her round, but then he's exposed as a fake, and she disappears. But, having taken the scam so far, he discovers that there's no difference between faking it and being it, and he duly becomes the toast of the town. Now he tries to get her back, but then finds she has her secret too. The story is narrated by Ben's incorrigible sidekick Jason, who, with unintentional hilarity, is blind to the magic of romance that Ben's deception has unwittingly conjured up.

What's with the low scores?!
2 November 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I just finished watching MY YACHT and as I usually would do, I started to write my review for IMDb. However, I was shocked to see that so far the film has an abysmally low score of 1.7! This makes you wonder if some of the people voting never saw the film, as it's fresh and interesting throughout and would make a nice feature-length film.

The story is about a guy who is at Cannes and pretends to be a rich billionaire. The fact is, he's a nobody but he can't bring himself to tell a girl he's smitten with the truth. So, throughout the film he tries to impress her and finagles his way onto a yacht and into a luxury resort in order to convince her that the stories he's telling her are true.

A clever idea and if it were hashed out more, it would make an interesting independent film. Just don't believe the negative scores--it's a very good film.
