Storyline

Yorkshire writer Kate finds out her biological clock is ticking down the same day that her husband leaves her. To get over the financial crisis this creates she takes in car-dealer Dave. He's homeless as Kate's husband has moved in with his wife. This leaves the problem of how to get promptly pregnant. Surely not with increasingly interesting Dave. They can't even agree on a baby's name - he thinks Fanny is silly and she finds Elvis, well, inconceivable. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

Great romantic comedy set in Yorkshire
8 October 1999 | by (Leeds) – See all my reviews

This is a story about the relationship between an unlikely couple thrown together when their respective partners embark on an affair. Kerry Fox plays the part of a struggling romantic novelist who has to take in Ray Winstone, who plays a flash, but down on his luck car salesman, as a lodger, to make ends meet when her husband deserts her. The film has some brilliant moments of comedy, and a great supporting cast. Ben Daniels shines in his part as a gay actor who tries to be a matchmaker for Fox. This was much more fun than Notting Hill and had the extra bonus of some good earthy sex scenes!
