Perfect Acting - Perfect Fun!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Relative Values [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
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.
