Plot:

At college Paige meets Eddie, a fellow student from Denmark, whom she first dislikes but later accepts, likes, and loves; he proves to be Crown Prince Edvard. Paige follows him to Copenhagen, and he follows her back to school with a plan.

Review:

Paige, Julia Stiles, is a no nonsense, get shit done woman. She’s going to be a doctor and nothing can stand in her way. Edvard, Luke Mably, is a prince that has been given everything expect the one thing he wants, no responsibility. After viewing a commercial for Girls Gone Wild Wisconsin (I kid you not) he decides that he’s going to run to Wisconsin so that he can get easy college girls out of his system.

Almost immediately he runs out of money and has to get a job because his parents have cut him off. With work and school bearing down on him, naturally, that means he should forget about the coeds that might be willing to be a one night stand for an attractive man with a British accent, instead he puts his sights on Paige.

Opposites attract and they’re both beautiful and things are going smoothly, until the paparazzi find the prince and Paige discovers he’s first in line to the Denmark throne. Did I mention he was hiding that?

Anyway, after speaking with her mom she maxes out all of her credit cards, and her friend’s, to run to him in Denmark. She decides that she will be his queen and all of her dreams no longer matter because she has love.

Then things take an awesome turn. She realizes that she may love him and he loves her, but this isn’t her world. Sure she could make it work, but she still wants to be a doctor, she still wants to help people. So she tells him goodbye and heads back to college.

Edvard becomes king, but he decides that love is more important and that he can wait for Paige to get her degree and become a doctor. He runs back to America, tells her he’ll wait forever, and they kiss and three more movies are made about their love.

It was a cute movie, I really liked the twist at the end. It made the movie more than a simple romance.

3/5
