From the starting blocks this seems promising, with a talented cast and reasonable premise pushing a mildly amusing film.

It starts to falter half-way through as the plot remains basic, direction becomes laboured and dialogue turns super schmaltzy.

It scrapes over the finish line clutching the ending you can see coming 26 miles off.

Verdict: If you like Richard Curtis Brit romcoms (I don’t!) and can tolerate having a plotline slowly and surely drilled through your skull, then you might like this.
