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 »

Charming main characters, and cast. But too rigid a formula elsewhere.
20 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Whenever I talk to someone about how good writing is crucial, this is a low budget example that I will refer them too. Henry and Scarlet are so charmingly written that it makes the jobs of Joseph Cross and Sarah Roemer easy, and together they are simply adorable. The film does suffer from a distinct "I can see where this is going next" feeling due to its unwillingness to break the classic romantic comedy template. A shame because a brave wander away could have taken it to some better places. But it is an enjoyable ride, even if you know the scenery by heart. With the two lead characters and the people who play them, it has more charm in its short running time than many films of the same genre that run for almost twice the time. Special mention also to Jo Pantoliano as the hotel boss, in a turn that would actually make him a good J.J. Jameson in the next spiderman film. When you see it... you will know. He's pretty remarkable.
