1.0 out of 5 stars A Comedy Without Laughs...., 31 Mar 2008
This review is from: Relative Values [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
As the opening credits rolled on this movie I started to get misgivings. A Baldwin brother... but sadly William not Alec, a Thompson sister, unfortunately Sophie and not Emma, a Hollywood actress - but its Jeanne Tripplehorn, one of that breed of B-list American babes who along with the likes of Andie MacDowell happily slum it in British made movies. Julie Andrews leads the lack lustre cast as an aristocratic matriarch in 1950s British society. Many years living in LA have given Dame Julie's accent a strange mid Atantic twang which does not serve her well in this supposedly terribly English role. The plot is not the most intriguing and the script provides no real laughs. The scenery's pretty enough and there's nothing here that would offend your grannie. To sum up, its a pleasant enough way to kill an hour on a Sunday afternoon, but its not a movie you will treasure and want to watch again. What the wonderful Stephen Fry was doing wasting his talents as the butler with no great lines to say is beyond me - picking up the paycheck and hanging out with his friends I'd guess!
