An average movie

Obviously, I wasn’t expecting much from this flick but, somehow, I still ended up watching it. I wonder if I watched it at the time with my step-daughter. The point is that this movie was obviously made for a target audience (the young girls between 10-14 years old) and the rest of us wouldn’t or shouldn’t care for it. Anyway, it was highly inspired by ‘Roman Holiday’, a classic which already didn’t really blow me away, but this movie never comes nearby the level of this timeless romantic tale. I mean, Julia Stiles and Luke Mably did their best but there was no way they could compete with the huge charisma of Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck. Above all, there was a terrible lack of ambition from the makers, they just followed the formula without adding anything remotely edgy or interesting and I really had a hard time to care for the whole thing. Still, I always had a weak spot for Julia Stiles, back then she was one of the most in-demand actress of the time and it’s too bad we don’t hear much from her anylonger. To conclude, it is a rather weak romantic-comedy and I don’t think it is really worth a look, expect maybe if you are a fan of the genre.
