Hugh Grant‘s charm and some extremely hilarious moments make up for the lack of substance and a bad ending in this charming but forgettable comedy. Grant plays (what else) a bumbling Englishman in love with beautiful Italian-American , who finds out upon his marriage proposal to her that she’s got a big secret: her family is in the mob. Soon Grant is caught up with her charming father (James Caan) and his pals as they try to avoid the FBI, the police and Tripplehorn’s knowledge of Grant even contacting her father. Very funny, but in the end much too weak. Burt Young stands out as “Uncle Vito”, the head honcho of Caan’s crime syndicate. Produced by Elizabeth Hurley.
