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>

This is actually pretty good!
10 September 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

OK, it's low budget, kind of obvious, and the script is a bit clumsy at times. But the acting's great all the way through, and there are some very neat comic touches...

I enjoyed the fairground sequence, as well as most of the supporting cast moments. Tom Wilkinson as the father is fun and likable, the girl from Gregory's girl is good - and is it a first ever screen performance for Little Britain's Matt Lucas...?

Geraldine Somerville isn't an obvious choice for a romantic comedy heroine, but James Purefoy is very sexy... And Patricia Hodge and Benjamin Whitrow (Pride and Prejudice anyone?) are both fantastic!

Worth a try on a cold winters evening...
