Miss Placed Opprobrium
1 November 2012 | by (Birmingham, UK) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure why everyone has a downer on this. It's in the style of Two Weddings, Bridget Jones and other tedious British sitcoms, and is really not that much different. Yes, it's embarrassing and awkward. Yes, it's corny and predictable. But it's a British sitcom. What do you expect? I initially saw a little of this film via a very poor quality download. It was frankly unwatchable. That was about three years ago. As it starred a couple of my favourite actresses, Heather Graham and Mia Kirschner, it's been nagging me ever since.

So I tried to track it down and found that it's unavailable in the UK. There are no Region 2 copies in existence. As far as I know, it's never been on the telly. It recently came to mind again, so I checked Amazon and discovered that I could import it from the States for less than the price of a typical DVD in the UK.

So my question is this? Why do I have to import a film from across the Atlantic when it's set in London and Ireland and where the majority of the actors, and the director and crew, are British? To add to the irony, the two main British characters are played by Americans, and an American character is played by a Brit! Just crazy!

Despite being a pukka DVD, the picture quality has that strange jerky motion as if it was being received from a trans-Atlantic satellite. Other than that technical irritation, I liked the photography and the music, and the faux-British accents are not as bad as some people say they are - honest! The plot is cringe-worthy and could have been resolved at several points along the way if it weren't for ridiculous hurdles placed in the way as a device to make up 104 minutes.

It deserves more than 4.5 out of 10.

(Knowing my luck, after importing the DVD it'll be shown on UK TV in the next couple of weeks.)

Edit: I forgot to add that there are no British men called Zachary. Zak is an American name. Feel free to prove me wrong, but I'm right. :)
