Very disappointing
11 December 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

At no time do you care whether any of the cast are swept under a bus (in fact you start to positively will a 32b to enter through the lounge window and end it all!). The script is laboured and as each character enters they become more irritating than the last. Labelled a comedy drama it is neither of these.

It shows how even a good director such as Lewis Gilbert (Shirley Valentine, Bond movies, Educating Rita. Alfie etc etc) can not make a good film from a bad script.

For Shelagh Stephenson (writer) it must be hurtful to read these sort of comments but if she is honest she will look back at the film and realise what a mess it is. These are early days yet for her but she would do well to remember that audiences need to like at least one of the cast in some way. I could not wait to see the back of them.
