A 35 year old woman, Kate, awakes from an eighteen year coma following a tragic accident to an unfamiliar world. As she tries to make sense of what has happened her family and old school friends are reluctant to dig up the past.
Alice Chenery and Gil Raymond are perfect for each other. They like the same things, respect the same things, and share the same beliefs. The only problem is that they are completely unaware of each other's existence.
Couldn't make it through 30 minutes of this utter trash of a movie. Acting is terrible. Where did they pick up this lot? Why Why WHY pray, is the talented Olivia Colman sharing the screen with these insipid hacks??! It was as if everyone had memorized their lines but were dead tired by the time the shoot rolled around. The characters are all uniformly despicable and I just wanted to throw things (preferably rotten and slushy) at them.
And the plot, you ask? It has been done to death a million times in better movies and better shows with supremely better actors. If you are feeling inclined to watch it just because the plot sounds remotely interesting, STOP. Pick up "Lucky Seven" instead.
Why is this even called a romantic comedy? There is nothing romantic in being socially malicious because you put too much faith in pseudo-pop- statistics from Vogue and nothing comic in the interminable boredom this movie indifferently nudges you into.
Everyone apart from Olivia Colman might just as well be made of wood and stuck on the wall - that's how uninteresting they are. Maybe the lead actress should stick to the runway and not return to the screen AT ALL. If there had been a rating below 1 star, I would have readily chosen it. Since there is no such option, the one lone star goes to Michael Bublé whose heartfelt track "Lost" is misused in this shoddy piece of work.
Bottomline: This is bottom of the barrel fare. Avoid, unless you are a rabid fan of Olivia Colman and have developed an effective way to block out the rest of the abomination of a cast and ignore the vapid excuse for a plot. Ugh.
