Growing up, Kelly Pavlik always thought she would follow the family path and become a Montana rancher. Instead, she discovered novels, and with Masters degree in hand, she is now an Assistant Professor of English Literature at Montana State, and has been invited to be a lecturer at Oxford once she obtains her Ph.D. This has placed a slight rift between her and her now widowed father, Hank Pavlik, who feels no longer connected to her in her redirected life path. In part because of her bad choices and in part because of her somewhat unrealistic expectations, Kelly has had little luck in the romance department, she wanting to be swept off her feet by the likes of a dashing young man in her favorite Jane Austen novels.

User Reviews

It is only February 2018, but is possible this is HM's flop of the year!
11 March 2018 | by vicjenjSee all my reviews

Montana rancher Hank Pavlik (James Brolin) inherits a estate in a fictional European country, and reluctantly becomes the King of the country.

Hank's daughter Kelly (Cindy Busby) is his daughter that stars along side of Alex (Andrew Cooper) the estates groundskeeper.

This is the most disappointing HM movie of the year, it had so much potential to be funny....... but it wasn't. The script is poor which required the actors to over act, and it is obvious that it prevented them from being even good. The chemistry between the leads is very poor.
