A naive, English auctioneer proposes to his girlfriend after three months of dating. She initially refuses, explaining that her family is mob-connected and that any man who gets involved with her will become corrupted. He assures her that he's up for the challenge, and she relents. The trouble starts when her father tries to teach the young Brit the ways and language of the underworld.
Ian Douglas: After the success of Notting Hill, one had high hopes for the next Hugh Grant romantic comedy. This one fails to match up. Although there are some very funny bits, they are too few and far between.
Andrew Simpson: Better than Notting Hill. Hugh Grant is magnificent playing his usual bumbling self.
