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>

Unlikely love match turns good
10 February 1999 | by (London) – See all my reviews

A delightful romantic comedy in which two people are forced together when their loved-ones elope together. The unlikely partnership of Ray Winstone (beer drinking lad) and Kerry Fox (gentle writer) is perfect - and the film is fast and witty. Great supporting roles from her gay flat mate and his bank-manager boyfriend.
