Patronising script highlights Friel's lack of talent.
22 April 2003 | by (Norwich, England) – See all my reviews

Anna Friel plays an embarrassingly stupid Dublin girl who jets off to London with her boyfriend for a job that's really just a job interview. The interview ends disastrously, she's dumped by the boyfriend and then, literally, bumps into one of the interviewers who (and who'd have guessed) just happens to fancy her.

Find herself pregnant by her previous boyfriend, she cons the new guy into believing he's the father. As the birth is earlier than expected, he realises what's been going on, walks out on her and she returns to Dublin.

Reconciliation with the father fails when the English boyfriend turns up and it all ends in a highly unbelievable lovey-dovey get-back-together at the airport.

This really is very much a "made-for-ITV" film: catering for the lowest common denominator in their target audience (i.e. try not to make the people think too much about what they're watching).

Friel's Oirish accent is passable and, of course, she gets her clothes off (it must have taken some time to get those nipples peeking out of the bubble bath by just the right amount).

Altogether, don't waste your time watching this if it should ever be repeated.
