I picked this up from a free trial of a movie channel on a random Wednesday evening. I thought it was perfect.
The film has a wide range of comedy from witty sarcasm to toilet humour. The characters (especially the models) are blatant stereotypes but they are not portrayed in a malicious way allowing you to get attached to them. The plot is fairly basic ( a mix of 'Shes all that' and 'Rear Window') but has just enough substance to keep you from drifting off.
Sterling performance from Monica Porter, production, lighting, sound track etc. all to standard.
Don't expect to have your mind blown or injure yourself laughing. Do expect a good solid rom-com you can relax and grin too.
