Delightful Romantic Comedy, 28 January 2011
Author: JohnRayPeterson from Montreal, Canada

I like movies with original storyline and this movie does have that. The Movie is not a slapstick comedy but a light one based mostly on the typical Scottish refined satire. Like Irish satire, it is delivered with a tone that we expect from kind words and can be melodious at times, hence my choice for 'delightful'. The principal characters have flaws and problems that render them human and likable. Wise people know that it is the little imperfections that attract us to one another, the reason, and there is a good one, would be too long to explain. This movie exploits that very concept but in a gentle unassuming way. Those characters evolve as the story develops, a sign of good story writing; the outcome is somewhat predictable, not glaringly so, but then again all romantic comedies and romance stories are. Tragedies are the same, predictability wise; it should only be considered a fault if the type of movie was a suspense, a thriller or an adventure. By the end of the movie you feel acquainted with almost all the characters, not just the key ones. I was pleased with the movie as a whole, including the choice for the title; it's a perfect choice. For those who get immersed in the story, the title is like the final brush-stroke on a painting. I was smitten by Kirsty Mitchell. I feel it deserves a good rating because it did not leave me indifferent.
