Laurence recounts to his neighbour how his life long friendship with Frank and Daniel has been overturned in just three days by their each independently meeting, and falling for, Martha, who has no idea of their connection. Slowly the tale unfolds, the narrative moving backwards and forwards gradually filling in the gaps until we see the whole picture. Written by
Rufus Sewell would improvise a lot on set. See more »
When Lawrence and Martha stop to get a bite to eat on their way back to London from the airport, Lawrence is seen reclining on the hood of his car. In the first shot, there is nothing on the hood with him. In the next shot, there is a burger and a drink. See more »

Martha (Monica Potter) is single, sexy and she's so sick of her life she's off to London with the last of her money.
Daniel (Tom Hollander) is single, successful and after one look at Martha he thinks he's in love. Frank (Rufus Sewell) is one of Daniel's friends, despite the fact he is always trying to get one up on him. Lawrence (Joseph Fiennes) is another of Daniel's friends, and he is always caught between Frank and Daniel as they jostle for supremacy.
The casing and script are both strong, and the feel of the movie is nice and original, even with the usual clichés in the romance element. It's funny, it's romantic and it has sex appeal for both men and ladies, so obviously its worth a watch; if you don't try it, you'll never know.
