Romantic comedy starring Julia Stiles as Paige, a determined college student from the Midwest who meets and falls for Eddie (Luke Mably), a Danish foreign-exchange student. What Paige doesn't know is that Eddie is the son of the King (James Fox) and Queen (Miranda Richardson) of Denmark and has come to America hoping to find a non-stop keg party complete with buxom American babes. What he and his butler (Ben Miller) don't count on is squalid dorm life, final exams, and the possibility that Eddie might actually find his true soul mate in the sensible Paige.

Here we have a quite realistic view of an unexpected passion between a modern, ambitious woman(Julia Stiles as med student Paige), meeting an equally realistic character, a modern young man, who happens to be a royalty,(British actor Luke Malby as Eddie, the Prince of Denmark)and who is trying to escape the burden of wealth and paparazis by going to USA to study. A lot of royalties in Europe do this in real life too. The change of Malby's character Eddie gives an extra thrill to the story line, when he falls in love with a woman who is not accustomed to a jet set life. He want's to be like other guys and mature, for her.
The interesting thing in this movie, as in all good movies, is not the ending, but the way there and how the characters get there. We know the endings in this type of movies so that is not an issue really. But unlike most rom-coms there is a good and realistic dialog between these two characters in this movie, and even better, a lot of it happens through witty face expressions. Especially when they are about to fall in love but don't want to admit it to each other. The expressions themselves fills your stomach with butterflies in these scenes! Malby is a promising actor in this respect that I'd like to see more of in the future. Another bonus is that the chemistry and flirting (read:silent attraction) between these characters lasts to the very end. They really want to make it work although they do give up from time to time because of their different backgrounds. A very well acted and written contemporary love story, where you can identify with the characters feelings and metamorphoses.
A bonus also for the adaptation of the British royal modern life style, in stead of the Danish (because of the language). Much better than if characters would have pretended to be Danish. As a Scandinavian no one would have bought a fake accent, so better go for the British style all along.
One could only hope that real life royalties would come out as happy as Eddie in his choice of love. Unfortunately it seems that real life royalties often face a heavier load (the real prince of Denmark also married a "commoner", but his royal burden / upbringing did cause problems and led to a divorce).
There's nothing better than a well acted feel good movie, but nothing worse than a badly acted, badly directed or totally silly one. This belong to the first category. I recommend this to everyone who is past their teens and want to watch a quality lighthearted romance movie. Side characters like Miranda Richardson as the Queen also makes it a good one.
Whatever you do, do not buy the sequel. I can't imagine how anyone could think of replacing Julia Stiles in that one. This is a movie to watch over and over again. It has enough good chemistry, no sequel can replace that.
sure it's not a classical, and not a serious movie, but is is enjoyable nonetheless.
Julia Stiles is stunning. Her Paige is fresh, witty, lovely and lovable. You can't not like her. Her acting is great and totally natural.
Luke Mably plays well too, he is a bit too goodlooking for my taste, but he is totally creditable for the look of a Danish prince, his British accent is charming!
The actors playing Paige's brothers were immensely funny, and Soren was perfect.
The filmong, photographing was stunning too.
There is quite an unexpected turn at the end: the surprising not happy ending, then coming round and having a happy ending sure makes it a bit less predictable.
A lovely movie to watch whenever you feel like you need your "rose-y world fix" :-)
