Not The Film For Me
11 May 2008 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Single Mum Annie (played by the lovely Helen Baxendale from Cold Feet) has a big decision to make when her lover Mack, handsome Patrick Baladi who sometimes has a slightly self-satisfied air about him, lands a plum job in New York and wants Annie and son Charlie to join him.

Unfortunately this is all played out so predictably with by-the-numbers plotting of the Boy Meets Girl etc., etc., variety, one-dimensional supporting characters, and a bit of Little England thrown in. And the attempts at humour all fall flat.

The main problem for me was that angel-faced Charlie is a selfish, manipulative, lying little toad. And those are his good points! Maybe the message is that children need two parents in order to grow up human. I'm not sure but we certainly are told that smoking is a good thing if you are stressed! There are the usual Hallmark bedroom scenes where Mack proudly displays an unfeasibly hairy chest while Annie meticulously covers up.

Sorry, Helen, can't recommend this one.
