A charming film, with some naughty bits.
19 June 2011 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This movie has some really funny moments, considerable charm, and a nice sensibility, all too rare in most modern British films.

If you are married (or have ever been in a relationship of more than five minutes), you will be able to identify with the Finkels' problems and be amused by the varied and intriguing solutions they come up with to add some spice to their ailing sex life. There is also a nice contrast with the other main couple and we see how both couples deal with the same problem in rather different ways.

The unusual locations in London were used to great effect and the art direction was excellent.

PS: After watching this film cucumbers will always make you smile.
