Worst film I've ever watched.
26 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

Made the mistake of watching this on Netflix before reading any reviews. It seriously was the worst film I have ever had the misfortune of watching.

The storyline was ridiculous; the actors were appalling. Sean Macguire I think was attempting to emulate Hugh Grant, but fell flat on his face. The female lead seemed to think she was Julia Roberts - she wasn't. Her ditsy, cutesy persona was incredibly irritating.

I actually turned the film off after an hour, I couldn't bear it any longer.

One hour of my life I can never get back
