A young woman (Amanda Bynes) who lives in New York with her mother (Kelly Preston) longs to meet her
long-lost British father (Colin Firth). One day she decides that she cannot wish and wait any longer and travels to London, where she
discovers that not only he's an aristocrat, but he's just announced his candidacy for political office. Apart from the inevitable
lifestyle clash, a scandal such as the sudden appearance of an American teenage daughter could ruin him. Also with Jonathan Pryce and Anna

several scenes with thrusting, wiggling and spinning. A young man holds a young man around the waist while on a motorcycle. Women wear
outfits that reveal cleavage, bare abdomens, shoulders, backs and legs. A young woman wears a skin-tight top that accentuates her figure,
and a man wears skin-tight leather pants and dances in front of a mirror. A young woman remarks that a man should have "put a cork in it
17 years ago" during a discussion about him having a child he was not aware of.

woman in a darkened kitchen. A man talks about his ancestors and the limbs and other body parts they lost in battles. A young woman bumps
her head on the roof of a van, trips over a man's leg, falls off a stage and lands on a man's lap. A man hits his head under a table (he
is apparently inebriated). A woman shooting skeet hits a statue (blowing its head off), hits a bird house (sending the birds flying), and
