The Prince & Me ★½ 2004 (PG)

Dairy farmer's daughter Paige (Stiles) is a driven premed student who dreams of a future with Doctors Without Borders until Prince Charming shows up disguised as an average Joe. In this case his name is Eddie—actually Prince Edvard of Denmark (Mably)—and they fall in love, but as these young romance stories go the truth inevitably surfaces and the inner conflict begins. Should she give up on her life's passion? Or live the supposed fairy tale life of a princess? Of course in this modern day the larger question should be why does she have to choose? Only Stiles' engaging performance makes this sweetyettypical story at all worth watching. 110m/C VHS, DVD . Julia Stiles, Luke Mably, Ben Miller, James Fox, Miranda Richardson, Eliza Bennett, Alberta Watson, John Bourgeois, Joanne Baron; D: Martha Coolidge; W: Mark Amin, Jack Amiel, Katherine Fugate, Michael Begler; C: Alex Nepomniaschy; M: Jennie Muskett.
