All's Faire in Love

Opens Friday, Oct 28, 2011 Synopsis: Optimistic college football player Will (Owen Benjamin) finds his burgeoning romance with beautiful Renaissance Faire performer Kate (Christina Ricci) thrown into jeopardy during a competition to distinguish the nobles from the peasants in this romantic comedy featuring Ann-Margret, Nadine Velazquez, Bill Engvall, Cedric the Entertainer, and Matthew Lillard. An all-star on the gridiron, Will finds his athletic future in jeopardy after cutting class a few too many times. So when Professor Shockworthy (Cedric the Entertainer) offers Will the opportunity to earn a passing grade by joining the Greenbriar Theater Troupe at the All's Faire in Love Renaissance Faire, the brash jock has no choice but to accept. Little does Will realize he's about to meet the woman of his dreams. A former investment banker who left behind a career in finance to pursue a career in drama, Kate has decided to join her cousin Jo (Louise Griffiths) at the Renaissance Faire, and get lost in character. Trouble arises, however, when the chief benefactress announces a competition between the lowly Greenbriar Theater Troupe and the stately Troupe of Royals to determine which acting company will gain control of the Renaissance Faire's prestigious Shakespearean stage. And with the shifty Rank (Chris Wylde) leading the Troupe of Royals, Greenbriar Theater Troupe has their work cut out for them. Somewhere in the course of fighting for the underdogs, however, Will and Kate realize that despite their differences, they might just be the perfect match. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Christina Ricci, Owen Benjamin, Ann-Margret, Matthew Lillard, Cedric the Entertainer Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
