- Summaries (2)
SMOOCH is a modern retelling of the classic Frog Prince tale with a romantic comedy twist. A rakishly handsome "English Royal" comes to America for an arranged marriage, and ends up being mugged in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park and left with amnesia. A precocious 11-year-girl, who can't bring herself to dissect a frog in science class, goes to the park with the intent of setting it free, and through a serendipitous misunderstanding thinks she turned the frog into a man after kissing the frog's boo-boo away with a kind smooch. She brings him home and soon realizes the only way she can "keep him" is to have the man impersonate a "Royal Nanny" and convince her beautiful widowed mother to hire him. With the clock ticking and his royal family searching for him, the man - whose memory eventually returns to him - falls hard for the girl's mom, and it seems like a Valentines Day dream come true until he's found by his family and is forced to finally stop being a bit of a "toady"... and become a real man. In the end, the little girl, the guy, and the gal, all discover that even in today's crazy world, "happy ever after" is possible.
Spoiled, bore English true aristocratic prince Percy/Flynn grudgingly comes to San Francisco to perform his vital duty: preparing to wed a ducal family's suitable daughter with crucial dowry. Seeking solace in nocturnal pub life after the drudgery of formalities, he ends up mugged and dumped in a pond near the Golden gate bridge, causing amnesia. He gets found and taken home by dreamy fatherless brat school girl Zoe Cole, who believes him to be the fairy tale prince created by her kissing 'to human life' the frog she saved from dissection and smuggled out of school. She drags Percy into her favorite children books series as the clumsy knightly her Flynn, and gets him engaged by her careerist mother Gwen as ideal gentleman-'babysitter'-housekeeper. This taste of commoner life helps Percy put things in perspective before his trusty butler Wilkins, who observed approvingly, even amused, takes him back to aristocratic reality.
