Plot: An American girl, Daphne, heads to Europe in search of the father she’s never met. But instead of finding a British version of her bohemian mother, she learns the love of her mom’s life is an uptight politician. The only problem now is that her long-lost dad is engaged to a fiercely territorial social climber with a daughter who makes Daphne’s life miserable.

One stereotype after another
This was a silly movie that contained every possible stereotype of the British upper class that exist. They all live in huge guarded mansions, filled with masterpieces of art and gilt furniture. None of them have the ability to show affection, except to dogs and horses (even stated in the film!). There is always one royal who loves uninhibited Americans with bad manners. Their families will disown them if they marry outside their class–and of course the lovers will always be blissfully happy, though poor as church mice and produce charming, balanced children. The wicked stepmother/stepsister are always snobbish, social climbers. British politicians can always find the right words for the public but cannot manage a coherent sentence in their private lives.
There are plenty of American stereotypes as well. Hippy mothers are perfect, drive silly vans, etc.
What’s with the obsession with Jane Austin? Why is Firth’s character named Dashwood? I can’t believe I am the only person to notice this!
Acting critique: Firth over-acted to the point of being laughable. The wicked steps were one-sided, silly characters. Amanda was cute, though, which is what I guess was the point of the movie.
Bottom line–harmless drivel, a film to share with your romantic 10 year old, if there isn’t a good Disney film available.
Clichéd American Crap!
What a stultifyingly dull and inept portrayal of Britain! This movie was obviously written by an American who doesn’t understand our country, and has probably never even been here (at least not for any length of time).
There were so many inaccuracies, not least the total misrepresentation of our political system, and the hopelessly outmoded portrayal of our “class culture”.
This is an England that does not exist, and has never existed!
Worse still was the plot, which presented a nauseatingly sentimentalised picture of family life, not to mention a hopelessly unrealistic adolescent relationship.
If you want a good British movie, you’d be much better off with “The Ghost of Greville Lodge”, or “One Against the Wind”.
