Love and green issues lead to a fairy-tale finale in this formulaic yet innocuous culture-clash romp, starring former Desperate Housewives leading lady Nicollette Sheridan. Not as slushy as the usual made-for-TV romance, it sees Sheridan's work-obsessed LA executive embark on a life-changing adventure when she ditches her unfaithful fiancé a week before the wedding and then goes on their intended Irish castle honeymoon alone. There's lots of simple, visual humour in the clichéd, fish-out-of-water scenario that follows, as the uptight heroine suffers light-hearted humiliations at the hands of nature and the stereotyped locals - particularly antagonistic estate manager Greg Wise. Of course, the hostility between the two quickly turns to affection, facilitated by his matchmaking young daughter (played by scene-stealing newcomer Katie Bannon) and a contrived environmental subplot that allows the characters' true qualities to shine through.

Plot Summary

Romance starring Nicollette Sheridan as a successful businesswoman who dumps her fiancé a week before their wedding after she discovers that he's been cheating on her. Rather than wallow in self pity, she decides to take advantage of their planned honeymoon and jets off to stay at an idyllic retreat in the Irish countryside.
