      Steve D Its star is too obnoxious to enjoy any of it. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/24/23 Full Review william s Fish out of water tale that's dated but better than most people remember. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Ho hum story about ugly American Rob Lowe going to school at Oxford to be on their rowing team. It's a pretty standard story of Lowe being the brash outsider trying to work his way into posh society, getting in good with the snooty rowers and also trying to woo a Princess Stephanie of Monaco-like character played by Amanda Pays. Ally Sheedy plays an American girl also going to Oxford. The story is pretty dumb, but it's a good cast, which makes the film watchable. And even though this is a 80s style sudo-Brat Pack film, it doesn't really have that much of a 80s vibe to it, so I didn't even get all that good of a nostalgia kick from the film either. It's kind of funny to see a college age Julian Sands, who plays one of the nicer posh Brits. Alan Howard is also good a Lowe's very direct adviser. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Not bad, but not particularly good either. I am just as ambivalent about Rob Low's character in the film. He is both likable, charming, determined, self-serving, manipulative and arrogant all at the same time. it is somewhat sweet that he loves this woman from afar and actually moves to another continent just to be with her, but he seems to have no real sense of morals other than "how do I get what I want?" as an anglophile, it upset me to see the stereotypical portrayal of almost all brits as humorless, stuffy, snobby assholes. good for Lowe fans, but little else. There is a quite young Julian Sands here too though. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member This has the plot of a horror movie, not a lighthearted romantic comedy. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member A film about a guy who seriously under appreciates the fact that he is attending Oxford and where you actually find the antagonist fiance more likable than star. Where it is predictable it is horribly so and when it is not you wonder why that happened. Overall it was the story of a main character who had none and a bunch of people who knew where they stood.
