Good movie for the entire family. It is not dumbed down. The best parts are of course Brendan Fraiser and Helen Mirren and the scenery. Loved the palazzo on the lake, wish it were mine and the castle in the hills. The dungeons were fabulous. Great advertising, now I want to visit Northern Italy.
In regards to Helen Mirren, I like how many British actors are not afraid to take on smaller supporting roles and create fabulous characters.
