After dating for one year, Sara Dimarco, a second grade New Jersey schoolteacher from a working class background, is pretty sure her boyfriend Danny, a struggling non-fiction writer from Britain, is the person she wants to spend the rest of her life with despite his obsessiveness in not having an online footprint, which makes her and her best friend and teacher colleague Caitlin believe he's hiding something. When on their first anniversary date he proposes having already secretly received the consent of her loving parents, Marie and Bert Dimarco, a waitress and construction worker respectively, and she accepts does he divulge the reason for not having an online presence: he, really Daniel Christopher Seamus Horatio Hughes (and not just plain Danny) is the crown prince and first in line to the throne of St. Ives, a small monarchy off the coast of Britain. While Marie and Bert welcome the news of the engagement and of his true identity, Daniel must now convince his parents, King Edmond... Written by Huggo

Near the end of the movie, Sara sends her class to recess 5 minutes early and does not go with them. There is not a teacher who would do this as the students would be unsupervised. Even if there was some sort of recess monitor, she sent them early. So they would still be without an adult for a time. Leaving students unsupervised would get a teacher reprimanded, in the very least. Sara seems like a competent teacher and she likely would know better than this. See more »

Poor Fiona Gubelmann
26 May 2018 | by Jackbv123See all my reviews

Was this silliness on the part of Fiona Gubelmann her idea, or did she have a choice? I'm sure someone thought this was funny. There might have been some small smiles, but certainly not compared to the overacting that went into it. I wish I could have liked Sara, but she was just too much.

Soon the obstacles start piling up and the problem was, I didn't care. Sara, just shut up.

The usual Hallmark romance is about the boy winning the girl or vice versa, but in this movie, that has already been accomplished and this movie is more about the girl winning everyone else. And there is a large section about trying to make Sara conform. There is a little humor here, but not enough.

A little past half way, the fast forward button got a lot of use. It doesn't really get better.

The last part follows a pattern so many of these royal movies do, but in this movie it makes less sense than practically any of them I can remember. And it isn't even particularly well done.

The acting is poor. Too many clichés and one dimensional people. Terrible dialogue. Terrible plot. Terrible climax.

I often get angry with people who give terrible reviews to these movies when they should have expected just what they were complaining about. This movie really was bad on many levels. It didn't even do the expected things well.
