Storyline

Desperate to be married, Fran was supposed to be on his honeymoon. Instead he's single and slouching around London, entrenched in a bro-mance with his two best friends. At 29, Fran was sure he'd offered his fiancée everything, but she rejected his heart and his two-bedroom flat in Kentish Town, and called it all off four weeks before their wedding. Fran is convinced that she'll see the error of her ways...until he bumps into her with her new boyfriend, and any dreams he might have had of reconciliation are dashed. He has no choice but to move on and try to meet someone new. Meanwhile, his sometimes neurotic best friends, Ben and Jon, are suffering the opposite of Fran's predicament - their girlfriends are mad about them, but the guys appear lukewarm about their girls and are forever on the lookout for someone else. Whether trawling for talent at a Rabbi's house, being mistaken as part of a gay couple or negotiating advances from his lovelorn neighbour upstairs, Fran's search for ... Written by Alicia Brown

Cracking little Brit bro-mance
5 January 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have to say I haven't been so pleasantly surprised by a film for some time. Spector's comedy is refreshing and his keen eye for observation elicits some truly funny scenes. The laughometer was needed to record three proper belly wobblers, a couple of snorts and plenty of sniggers. All of this from a movie which only lasts 75 minutes. The script is so fresh because it looks at relationships through the eyes of a jilted bloke, rather than the dozens which stare through the mascara stains. It kicks off with our hero, Fran, lying on his own in bed on what was meant to be his wedding day. We follow him for the next two weeks when he should have been on his honeymoon. During that time his two rather flighty best mates attempt to drag him out of his pit of misery by pushing girls, alcohol or even yoga in his direction. Indeed, Fran has several chances to find a temporary solution to his situation with several rather attractive females throwing themselves at him but he is not convinced of a quick-fix answer, unlike his friends who are desperate to bed anyone in a skirt, despite being both involved in long-term relationships. The film belongs to Gerard Kearns (Ian Gallagher in Shameless) who, as Fran, is endearing yet not wet, thanks to an earnest or even, at times, deadpan delivery. Spector's writing is also a triumph. Fran is like so many 20-something blokes - misunderstood, awkward and lacking in confidence. The very people who would scorn the idea that it is always women who get the rough end of relationship break-ups. Spector says that he was interested in how the nice guys who offer security get dumped and the bits of rough don't. It's a line which will find much sympathy.

He has also done a masterful job of packing such a good movie into just 17 days of filming. Both Mrs W and myself gave it a big smiley face and a splendid 8/10. Go along and see it...it's a bromance which will please lads and lasses.
