I think the previous comments were a little harsh...it's a romantic comedy and not a bad example of one at that. As far as the plot goes I would compare it with the British TV series "Cold Feet" (not quite as good though). Dervla Kirwan is quirky and funny in her role and it's nice to see Chris Eccleston do something a bit different to Doctor Who. I also appreciated the underlying theme of Northern Irish Protestant/Catholic differences. Great soundtrack too, of course! All in all, it's entertainment, while not Oscar material,it was fun to watch and that's what counts, isn't it? A refreshing change from the formulaic Hollywood romantic comedies.
