Good actors save a dire story
21 December 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The portrayal of England is hysterically funny to any English viewer. The heroine appears to arrive in a bizarre parallel universe England of the 1930's wearing 1990s clothes and driving a 1990s car. One assumes that this 'quaint' view of the UK is intended to somehow appease a US audience whom the producers believe will know no better. The stereotypical stock US idea of English characters is frankly ridiculous.

In the opening scene for example. By the 1990s all English country stations were unmanned due to cost cuts and the idea of a railway employee who shuts doors without grumbling is hysterical. Then we meet the woman police officer called 'The Constable' who apparently knows all the local people - when the only ones she would know would be the criminals - and the police station she worked in would have dozens of constables.

Melissa Gilbert and her supporting cast do well with this nonsense and manage to salvage a watchable film out of a badly written screenplay and poor direction.
