On her 30th birthday, Pamela Drury is given the chance to see what might have happened if she had married "Mr Right" 13 years ago.
In a sequence that could have been endlessly corny if badly handled, Pamela is transported to her "married life" where she discovers what would have happened if she had chosen marriage over her journalistic career. The writers did not take the obvious route of making her husband out to be a rat, and the moment she discovers that she was the one that had been unfaithful is very telling.
All the cast are very strong, with Trent Sullivan as four-year-old Rupert stealing every scene he is in. Rachel Griffiths is totally believable as Pamela, in both her incarnations, and combines humour with pathos and credibility.
Somehow this film manages to avoid over-sentimentality, and reassures the viewer that regret is futile. Very funny and rather touching in places.
