Storyline

Jenny Seagrove plays a widow who is defying her friends attempts to find her a new parter. Charles Dance is part of her circle of friends and decides that he is the one for her. He is also in the fortunate position that he is her dentist who just happens to use hypnosis on his patients. Having no luck using conventional methods to win her affections, he resorts to hypnosis which has unforseen and amusing results. Antony Edwards is a failing sports psychologist who gets caught up in the events through a series of chance meetings and the unpredictable results of the hypnosis.

good-feel-good film!
1 December 1998 | by (Brighton, England) – See all my reviews

I saw this at preview (comes out 12/2/99 in UK as Don't Go Breaking My Heart) and was surprised how good it is. Come out feeling better than when you go in!

Anthony Edwards is good, Jane Leeves (Frasier) is very good. Tom Conti is a scene-stealer and Jenny Seagrove is great - not wooden as previously!

Direction OK, script surprisingly intelligent.
