This movie was such a pleasant change from the typical Hollywood romantic comedy movies. The acting is much more natural and it was easy to become absorbed into the story. It was refreshing not to hear American accents. Another positive was that there is no nudity or strong profanities which makes it suitable for a family viewing. The characters seem very real and down to earth, and unlike some of the big budget movies, I could actually relate to the leads very easily. Funny enough the whole story seemed very familiar to events in my real life which made it very easy to connect. Quite touching and a few laughs. Overall a very enjoyable movie for all audiences. 9/10
