Proof that not ALL British romantic comedies are great
11 March 2004 | by (Nottingham, UK) – See all my reviews

When I saw "British romantic comedy" in the newspaper, I thought "YAY!" since it's one of my favourite genres. Unfortunately, Richard Curtis was not involved in writing the script to this one. If he had been, it would have been a lot better.

The movie is about three severely messed up couples, but the movie isn't all that funny (even though it's got some funny parts - for instance, the senile father was a bit of a giggle) and it's not all that romantic either. My mother complained about the attitude of the women, while I defended them saying "Well, if I was to put up with any of that lot, I'd have an attitude too!"

The characters aren't particularly interesting or even believable, and the Salsa club only seems to be in the movie for no real reason other than to be a cool place to hang out at. It just doesn't add up. The only people that seem truly real in it are two of the cab drivers! The main cabdriver, who acts like some sort of guru (and what a wise man he is!), and the one that John Thomson plays. The rest? No. No way. None whatsoever. If you want a British romantic comedy, I suggest you see one that is actually funny, or romantic... or at least written by Richard Curtis!
