Goofs

Before Henry's first night shift, he is wearing a blue shirt, which he presumably takes off to change into his uniform. When he is shown walking home the morning after his first night shift he is wearing a red shirt. After walking in the front door of his house and going to his bedroom, he is wearing the blue shirt again, which he pulls off, and collapses into his bed, exhausted, face down and shirtless. When he wakes up later that day, instead of being shirtless, he is now wearing a white t-shirt. See more »

Light and fun - shame about the trailer...
3 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

First things first - if you haven't watched the trailer for this film yet, I suggest you don't. Unfortunately, if you have seen the trailer, you've also seen most of the film, because it doesn't offer a great deal more.

Personally, I had seen the trailer before seeing this, so I had a general idea of what to expect - and the film pretty much delivered on that. The whole film has a light feel, and being generally predictable throughout, you're never really in any doubt about the final outcome of... well, everything.

With that said, it's still an enjoyable way to spend some time, and is perfect for being not-too-long. Some of the dialogue between the actors is very forced and wooden, but the performances were generally sound, if nothing special. Sarah Roemer was strong as the leading lady/love interest, and her parents were excellent the few times they were on the screen. Joseph Cross was mediocre as the main character, with his emotional scenes unemotional at best, and I think that another actor might have been able to show a bit more chemistry with a good looking millionairess.

In all, if you happen to come across this film or are a particular fan of any of the actors, it's worthwhile giving it a watch. Otherwise, don't feel that you're missing out on anything that amazing - especially if you've seen the trailer.

6/10 :)
