Storyline

Dublin: Maura is a single mom, furniture repossessed, being evicted. For a fee, she's marrying Wilson, an African, facing deportation. Her nine-year old, Molly, thinks she's going to get a dad. Freddie, a bit of a compulsive, is remarrying Sophie, after divorce and recommitment; she's starved herself into her old wedding dress. Both bridal parties arrive at the same inn for receptions: Freddie and Maura's paths keep crossing, Sophie thinks the two are having an affair, immigration officers are stalking Wilson, and Molly's figuring out what's really up. Sophie's father threatens Freddie with bodily harm if anything goes wrong. Can it not? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Pleasant Surprise
12 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Aloha! So I was sitting at home on a Saturday night looking through the "New Arrivals" section of my Netflix account when I stumbled across this movie.

It's funny, and a bit quirky at times. I loved it! Would be a great one to watch with my wife and the lack of noticeable profanity was very very appreciated.

Unlike other reviews, I enjoyed the plot thoroughly. Found the acting to be very good, especially Sally Hawkins, Tom Riley and Sinead Maguire. With Sinead totally stealing every scene she was in. Was a blast to watch and I am very happy I gave it a shot. Can't wait for my wife to see it!

Great job by all involved. I highly recommend this one for it's quirky chuckle factor. Fire up some microwave popcorn and enjoy!
