"...A fond throwback to the British comedies of the 1950s..."
A group of Welsh villagers band together to defend their town's honor during WWI when an English mapmaker comes to town and declares their local "mountain" to be fifteen feet too short to qualify. The locals will stop at nothing to keep the befuddled cartographer in town long enough to change his mind.
Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:
The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill But Came Down A Mountain
Comedy favorite Hugh Grant (BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY) stars as a young man who offends an entire town by declaring their mountain -- a prized landmark -- to be a "hill." But soon he finds the eccentric locals, led by a witty innkeeper (Colm Meaney -- STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION) will stop at nothing to defend their honor! While the townspeople rally around their "mountain," a fiery young woman (Tara Fitzgerald -- SIRENS) charms the puzzled out-of-towner into seeing things their way! You'll be elevated by laughter as the hilarious townspeople rise to the occasion -- and the bewildered visitor stumbles into love when he least expects it!
