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>

No no no no no no no no no no no no no.....
8 September 2004 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

Not even bad enough to be jaw-dropping in its awfulness; this is the sort of film that makes me embarrassed to be British. Every single facet of plot and characterisation seems deliberately intended to set teeth on edge and incite the audience to hurl anything handy at the screen Ghastliest of these is the central character, Olivia, who spends the entire film trying to pretend she's not still in love with the man she jilted ten years previously; all the while going on in the sort of supposedly quirky manner seemingly beloved of some female romantic 'comedy' writers and universally loathed by every man on the planet.

As the film finally creaked to a close, Olivia's witterings in the final scene got on my nerves so much that it was all I could do not to run screaming into the street and start warning random strangers not to ever, ever waste even a moment on this monumental pile of tat.

If anyone attempts to induce you to watch this film, slap them immediately. It'll be a favour to you both.
