Oh no... I really don't like these fairytale movies about royalty... I especially hate it that american movies are filled with stupid prejudices about european culture and the countries. The stereotypes just annoy me. I also hate it when people say they are going to Europe on a holiday, could they just maybe learn the countries? I mean I don't say I'm going to Asia or North America. I know I'm drifting from the subject, sorry...

you're right. in fact when the movie came out they said that. its got nothing to do with Frederick, in fact the filmmakers had no idea he and Mary were getting marrried.

You're probably right. I didn't even know most of the countries still had monarchies until I started doing some research a few months ago. All you hear about in the US is the UK and Monaco.

You sometimes hear abt Jordan b/c of Queen Noor (when she is on Larry King Live). But its mostly the UK.....I only really hear abt Monaco when Albert was on TV here in the US (again Larry King Live- man Larry King is a Royal Magnet (sp?)).
I didn't even hear abt Pres. Bush meeting w/ the Royal Family of Denmark on TV. I saw a pic on another Blog that I visit (he was celebrating his birthday & the Queen helped him w/ his candles....& also that Jenna Bush was sitting next to CP Frederick)

On CNN, they showed the president greeting the Queen and her Prince at the airport and they mentioned who it was but you´re right, there was very little coverage otherwise.

the movie

I saw that movie awhile ago and thought it was stupid. I didn't know it was about Fred though. As I recall, the prince was the Crown Prince of Denmark, but his name was different and all the names were different than the names of the royal family in real life. Also, the Julia Stiles character was nothing like Mary. She was American, from some Mid-western town, and went to college there, was much younger than Mary. I think she was a bio major or something.

But I have to agree that Julia Stiles is not nearly as pretty as Mary. Who is?

I think Fred is much more handsome than that prince "Eddie" guy, though. Fred is too gorgeous for words.

I don't recognize the Danish accent is it there?
And dont forget HH Princess Elisabeth, cousin to the Queen. A very nice and informal lady!

When the the girl said....Denmark is not ready for a princess like me and then the prince responded that he was ready for one........do you think Mary and Frederik had a conversation among those lines? If they had one...that would be so romantic when the movie came out and told a version of thatkind of conversation!

I liked the movie somewhat but certainly not something to watch if you want to learn about the Dannish royalty!

I enjoyed this movie. Though i admit there are a lot of differences in this movie and the real royals of Denmark. Though we must remember this is still just a movie and not a documentary.
Unfortunatly I recent heard of the sequel, and the only returning cast member is the royal prince? it doesn't seem to be as good as the first.

I've seen this movie before... but I don't think it's based on Crown Prince Frederik's life

I love the part when the Prince pretended to be a commoner and tried working in the diner...

Um.....I know we all have different opinions but this movie SUCKED. It was painfully long and dull. No magic or anything. Pretty stupid movie in my opinion.

Johnny dear, that's because it was a "chick flick" and probably geared for the 9-13 year old set. I admit it, I thought it was cute...I thought the actors had chemistry and I like the fact that at the end he was willing to wait for her to go through medical school. Yes, unrealistic, but a good role model for the age bracket mentioned above.

You can see all of it here http://www.princeandme.com/ I hope you like it. I bought the movie just because it took place in Denmark!!! But it is a total chick flick, very sweet one though.

There is actually a sequel to this film about to come out straight to DVD at the end of February.
It focuses on the Wedding of Prince Edvard and Paige Morgan

I think it was said in some press release when the film premiered that it was inspired by Frederik, it was not about him. He spent a year at Harvard in the early 1990's and the filmmakers probably elaborated this simple fact. By the way I read somewhere that Frederik was registered as Frederik Frederiksen because the Harvard computer wouldn't accept Crown Prince as a name. If this is true there is at least some basis for the "pretending to be a commoner" theme in the film.
