User Reviews

A real feel good romantic comedy - a must see.
22 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

This film is a really nice small film with the great non-American humour. Tom Conti's cameo is excellent and the bonus is that at last there is a good film filmed in London - I know most of the places they visit. Beautifully shot and well put together. You would be stupid to miss it.
