| There are better films, certainly, but this romantic comedy has its moments
Catherine (Kelly Lynch) a young artist, of wealthy parents, has just come back from the Alps. It was there that her lawyer boyfriend, Robert (Patrick Dempsey), the son of a butcher, proposed. Although they do not seem like a match made in heaven, because of their backgrounds, they begin mailing out invitations to the wedding. On a lark, they mail one to the Vatican and invite the Pope to attend their nuptials. Much to their surprise, he accepts, mostly because of a manipulative scheme going on amongst those who are directly under him in rank. What is more important, Robert is working long hours with a looker named Helene, at the law firm, and a free-spirited, up-and-coming artist has his eye on Catherine. Can anyone spell splitsville? This is an okay movie when Catherine and Robert are around, for they are likable, attractive people. But, when the film centers on the Catholic bigwigs and their schemes, the movie becomes most dull. Production values, costumes and scenery are all very nice, making the film look good. But, in truth, only romcom lovers should be looking out for this little piece of cinematic fluff. Although Dempsey is dreamy and Lynch is a cool beauty, those who dislike tales of love will be yawning excessively if they should happen to catch the film late at night.
