Everyone in this film is annoying!! It's about as pleasant as a long series of migraines.
23 November 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

A rather stupid husband is going on a trip with his wife. However, as she waits for him on the train, the idiot meets his ex-wife and they start talking and both end up missing the train. They arrange for a car to take them to meet their respective spouses but the vehicle breaks down and they are stuck in the middle of no where--and are forced to share a room at an inn. When the man's in-laws learn that he missed the train because he was talking to another woman, they go in pursuit.

"Fast and Loose" is a British comedy of manners that tries very, very hard to be kooky but ends up being very, very annoying. Simply put--the characters seem like one-dimensional caricatures and aren't the least bit believable. The mother-in-law is a battle axe and nothing more. The innkeeper a religious nut. And so they go--all caricatures and not complete people. In addition the humor is very forced and little of it is particularly funny. As the film progressed, I thought it would get better. It didn't.
