Storyline

Turning down an offer from Harvard, bumbling genius Kieran Edwards opts to follow his true love Juliet to The University of Nottingham. Within days of arriving, he finds her in bed with a muscular sportsman. Heartbroken and vulnerable, Kieran finds himself as the unlikely student of a pick up guru. Using an array of unorthodox techniques, Kieran immerses himself in a new area of study with geeky enthusiasm. To the surprise of his teacher and his contemporaries, Kieran becomes a phenomenon on the Nottingham dating scene. As his success levels soar out of control, Kieran's studies and morals begin to suffer. Can the friendship of an unusual course tutor tempt him out of the late night bars and back into the library?

Really Good British Romantic Comedy
11 May 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Saw the film recently at an audience test screening. I loved it. It's great to see that the Brits can also produce really fun and young at heart campus movies.

The lead actor Dan Morgan played the part really well. I actually quite liked his character once he became a bit of a romeo. He was very convincing as Kieran. Loved the high jinx's at the Polo match, very amusing.

All in all the film was fun to watch. Had some very amusing moments, when you couldn't help but laugh out loud especially when Kieran gets found out for his womanising ways and gets exposed on national television.

The Director really seems to have got a lot of good performances out of the young cast and i thought the film was filmed beautifully. In my opinion it deserves to be a hit.
