Would you allow me the pleasure of taking you to the theatre on Saturday night?
Do you ask all your secretaries to go to the theatre with you on their first date?
Actually, it's something of a tradition. Yes, I do.
Oh. Well, who am I to deprive an American of what little tradition he can get?

So I just caught this movie, years after it first came out.... and loved it! The lead characters are perfectly cast, complimenting each others performances wonderfully throughout. Ok, so I knew from scene one that it was all going to turn out for the best in the end, but it was the sort of movie where I didn't care! Great comedy situations, and strong writing ensured a thoroughly enjoyable experience. N.B - No review of this film would be complete without a mention of the fantastic soundtrack. From 60's American, past 90's Britpop, and culminating in the utterly magical workings of Neil Hannon - it was a joy to listen to.
