Product Description

England, the 1950s. When the eligible Nigel, Earl of Marshwood (Edward Atterton) announces his engagement to Hollywood actress Miranda Frayle (Jean Tripplehorn), it causes all manner of trouble. To start with, his mother Felicity (Julie Andrews) is upset that he is marrying outside the aristocracy; then there's Miranda's movie star ex-lover Don Lucas (William Baldwin), who is determined to win her back; and finally there's the bombshell dropped by Felicity's assistant Moxie (Sophie Thompson), who claims to be Miranda's estranged sister. Will Nigel and Miranda ever make it to the altar or will the plotting and complications get the better of them?

I found this movie by chance whilst searching for movies by Julie Andrews. What a delightful and light hearted entertainment it turned out to be. This movie was well enjoyed by my family. The added bonus of having two of my favourite actors - Julie Andrews and Colin Firth was more than I could ask for. Colin Firth was at his most mischievous best and the ever lovely and royal Julie Andrews. This is an all star cast; there is a guest appearance by Stephanie Beecham.
This is great comedy and it is light hearted too. It is great fun to watch, you can't go wrong with this DVD.

This extremely comic tale of an aristocratic English family's horror about their son's intended wedding to an American actress is highly entertaining and comprises several first-rate actors. Julie Andrews as the head of the family and gorgeous Colin Firth as her nephew play a funny game with the "lost son" and his fiancee in order to prevent their marriage and restore him to the lap of his family. They are supported by the actress's former lover, played by a very charming William Baldwin.
Stephen Fry and Sophie Thompson on further roles are highly comic as well, and the superior acting of the whole cast makes this movie a real delight.

Format: VHS Tape
For pure entertainment with no pretensions of being anything more, this was just the ticket. Better than Gosford Park, in my opinion. Julie Andrews, Colin Firth, Sophie Thompson are all excellent. Even William Baldwin was just right. (As much as I want to NOT like those Baldwin brothers, they are pretty good.)
This was based on a Noel Coward play, so the idea was to take a stageful of characters and shake them up to see what happens. In this case, as Julie Andrews's character says "Not much, really." And yet, for an hour and a half, servants are scurrying, doors are opening and slamming shut, British aristocracy is pulling out all the stops to maintain its way of life, and Hollywood stars are swooping in to shake things up.
So ignore the lukewarm ratings of the professional reviewers and just enjoy good writing, fine acting, and a story that won't change your life.

Absolutely brilliant!!! Would recommend this film to anyone - the plot is incredibly funny and the acting is superb! Cannot understand why this isn't more popular than it is. A film for the whole family to enjoy.

I love this particular film. Whenever I need cheering up it is one of the first dvd's I go to. It is lighthearted, and the actors timings are perfect. Peter (played by Colin Firth)Ingleton is excellent in his role as a gay mischief maker. He is the nephew of Julie Andrew's character (not son as another reviewer stated - did that reviewer actually watch this film?)
And Sophie Thompson (not Sadie, again as stated by the above reviewer), shows what an excellent actress she is. What a talented family she is from - sister Emma, and mother

This film was delightful, we had such a laugh at the cinema! I don't know how anyone could give it ONE star!!! It really is funny, if you love Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Sense and Sensibility and The Importance of Being Earnest, then you will love this too!

Inspite the cast, this is fairly slow going. It is competantly acted, but the whole film is lacking in something. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon for entertaining family members!
