Warning: Artificial Romance Ahead: Full of Saccharine and tries too hard
6 August 2009 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

Let me say from the off we love romantic comedies; we will curl up happily together put the children to bed and watch a ton of these; even the not so good....

But...

This was just plain embarrassing from beginning to end. The plot, she only wants 5 dates with any man and then discovers she wants more, is just passable; but the execution is honestly awful.

It is just too too sweet - like a triple does of saccharine - there's no bite here at all - and the lines are good in an observational stand-up comedy sort of way but that can't sustain 90 minutes.

Honestly this should be avoided - it doesn't work, the chemistry is irritating and the mock HappyLand atmosphere is like the whole world is on Prozac.

Hate to say it but we actually hated this...
