Some Good Things but Lacking
18 November 2007 | by (Ft. Myers, FL) – See all my reviews

I was prepared to be totally charmed by this film, but my overall feeling is that it lacked something vital that I can't exactly put my finger on. The acting was marvelous, as is expected from the likes of David Tennant and Jessica Hynes, but I didn't feel like the movie reached the peak of either humor or emotion that it could have reached. That's not to say there were no excellent moments. Some scenes were very humorous, and it definitely proved that bad driving is amusing to watch. Ultimately, I think a main problem with the film was its length. At 90 or so minutes, it did not have adequate time to develop all of the characters and subplots properly. I think if it had been a full two hours it could have been much better. Overall, I found it mostly light and fun with few memorable moments.
