  1. It's one of those movies where talented filmmakers waste time with stale, phony material.
  2. 25
    A royal mess, a lethally stupid romantic teen comedy.
  3. 25
    May not set back Danish-American relations, but it's amusing to imagine how this schlock would have turned out under Denmark's most famous director, the American-hating Lars von Trier.
  4. 30
    Few actresses exude restless intelligence as effortlessly as Stiles, which is fortunate, since Martha Coolidge's film relies on that forceful charisma to make it past awful dialogue, contrived situations, and hokey use of Disney-style butterflies.
  5. In its nearly two-hour running time, in its always lugubrious pace, in its almost complete absence of laughs, The Prince & Me is a comedy that plays like a tragedy. No stricken bodies, though, unless you count the ones in the audience slumped back in their seats -- perchance they slept.
  6. Reviewed by: Angel Cohn
    Even the teens at whom this plodding and predictable romantic comedy is clearly aimed are unlikely to be swept away by its contrivances.

    Aside from being the most atrocious two hours I have ever wasted on a romantic comedy, this movie was entirely an offense to Denmark. Not only were all of the Danish characters played by British actors (who did little to alter their accents), but nearly every detail of the Danish scenes was horribly askew. I know it's just a silly romantic comedy (though one of the worst of the already redundant, but sometimes enjoyable, genre), but that is no excuse for arbitrarily picking a Scandinavian country that has retained its monarchy and pretending that it is England. The critics were much too nice to this abominable film with revolting, stilted acting, a contrived plot, and abundant falllacy. Full Review »

    Forget the stuffy professional reviewers, they don't know good films when they jump into their popcorn boxes. I have watched this movie over and over again. I am a sucker for romantic films and this is a perfect one. While I do agree that the whole butterfly bit is a littly silly, once you get past it, you can just fall into the movie--getting lost in the inspiration and romance. Plus, the lead actor is easy on the eyes. Trust me, if you are hopeless romantic, you will like this one. Full Review »
