I went into this movie looking for a Lasse Hallström’s Casanova-esque fun, rom-com period piece, but instead I’ve discovered a treasure trove of loosely connected scenes all leading up to the next shot of a naked woman. Seriously, this film feels like softcore porn with all the wooden acting of one to boot.

Hayden Christensen, Anakin Skywalker of Star Wars fame, is the main offender again here. Mischa Barton is surprisingly decent as his romantic foil, Pampinea, though she definitely struggles to keep up the British accent throughout.

This movie’s definitely interesting, however, if only for the spattered nudity, I suppose. Something had to have kept me glued to find out what was going to happen next and I can’t quite pinpoint it. Maybe it was just to see how this trainwreck would eventually turn out.
