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>

I actually quite liked it

Okay, it's not the best film in the world, and it is true that Olivia is one of the most whiny, God-awful, self-obsessed characters ever created, but I think that's a lot to do with the actress playing her rather than the character itself. Taken on it's own it is a very sweet film, and James Purefoy is just so absolutely gorgeous that it is worth watching the film just to see the moment when his little heart breaks when she leaves him at the alter. I defy any woman in the world not to want to give him a cuddle and tell him it will be alright! If you go into it expecting Citizen Kane or It Happened One Night then of course you are going to be disappointed, but if you happen to see it one one evening late at night on BBC1 when you can't sleep then it's a pleasant way to spend 90 minutes.
