Speed dating, 21st Century style: Spoilers Possible
23 September 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

May contain spoilers. A few of the perils of the blind date are explored in this interesting and rather surreal comedy. The female character is smug, successful, controlling and domineering and comes to the date with an agenda. Her would-be swain is played by the divine David Tennant in a camel corduroy jacket, so I adored him on sight. Charlie is a less driven personality than she, presenting as someone who is uncomplicated, amusing, ordinarily intelligent, not as risk-averse as she seems to be and perfectly aware that he is being played like a trout on a line. He seems a nice bloke. Rather than wasting her valuable time, finding out the usual way if they are going to be compatible, she suggests that - on this first date- they play out scenarios of what may transpire in their relationship over the next three months. In about 9 minutes, they learn something about each other. What is revealed is often less evident than what is kept hidden. In rapid succession,they go to the movies; they 'get to the sex', but in a G Rated sort of way, for viewers who need to know about this; they break up; they encounter each other again in passing. This film is a quirky little conceit that could fall flat on its face and nearly does once or twice. But it's saved by excellent comic timing and sharp performances from the two leads. It's only fair to give the writer, director and editor some share of the kudos too. Like all good comedies, there is a sting in the tail. Or is there? Watch it and see what you think!

Well worth spending time on this one.
