Storyline

Joe and Olivia are childhood sweethearts, about to embark on their wedding day. But, the so-called happiest day of their lives is over faster than they anticipated. Olivia doesn't quite make it up the aisle, and Joe is left jilted at the altar. A decade later, Olivia and Joe are walking up the aisle again, but this time it's as bridesmaid and best man. They haven't seen each other since and they have changed. Olivia wears pleated skirts and designs multi-storey carparks; Joe is older, wiser, sexier and married to a Spanish model, Mariana. But all is not as it seems. Will first love get a second chance? Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

Very tame
9 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

Geraldine Somerville is like a fish out of water in this one - I remember she was great in the TV series 'Cracker' for a couple of years, but this film really doesn't suit her at all.

It starts with a ridiculous set-piece played to "The Look of Love" - which almost had me turning off straight away. Then it rumbled on for a bit longer, she jilts Joe......"10 years later"......a car park designer. The interesting thing for me though was that her "running into" her former fiancée after all that time isn't as coincidental as some plot summaries may make out - seeing as her mother is going out with his father.

We get a bit of conflict between the two, some repressed and uptight guff, a Spanish woman, a tombola, a burned down gazebo, a talking sheep with a scouse accent, another wedding and some more "A Look of Love". And hey presto, that's it.

It's really not worth the time or the effort. The good thing is that it doesn't out-stay it's welcome, only being 80 minutes long.
