It seems the other reviews either love everything about this, or hated it...
Well, I have to say for what it is, it is OK and watchable if you know you just want a no brainer evening.
It doess a real sense of fun without too much silliness and even a definite charm.
It is sexy, and has a fair amount of nudity, but it's all done in a spirit of fun...
It is a bit of Carry On, a bit of Romeo and Juliet, with sexy romance, and dashing sword fights, some decent one-liners and some running gags it all works if you're in the right mood.
The plot is a take on the Comedy of Errors, three suitors, one girl, but one is mean and nasty, the other falls in love with another girl, and one is her true love... it ain't Shakepseare but it is fun to see what happens next.
Nicely shot with good costumes and settings this is one to just enjoy for what it is: escapist comedy reasonably entertaining and fun...
