Goofs

The red Jaguar E-TYPE or XKE that John drives Hattie home in when they first meet is a 2+2 model with a small rear bench seat and higher roof line. The tax disc in the window clearly shows that it expires in 1963. However the 2+2 model was only available from 1966. See more »

A cheap disgusting scandal affair artificially filmed as a real love story among a young man who fancies older and overweight woman, an unfaithful wife and a poor husband
7 May 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I don't know this is a 100% fact based story or partly fiction, however I don't think the story is nice for making a film. A handsome young man falling in love with an older chubby married lady who is 10 years more older than him?? If that is true, he has a rare taste. A husband will accept such an affair from his wife and even would like to downgrade himself to protect her reputation?? If it is true, he is a poor and stupid man. I do respect peoples's own choice for their own life. I simply do not see any charming point of this affair, and do not see any charming characteristics of the three main characters. There are thousands of beautiful love stories and incredible sex scandals in both the up and low society which can supply much better charming and exciting story lines for a movie.

It is really kidding that this film gets such high score in the user rating. What you can find in this stupid awful film are love scene of a handsome good looking young man with a chubby fat older woman. I am glad that I had first finished my dinner before I watched this stupid movie.

Take my advice, don't waste your time for such a film with awful story. Why should one waste one and a half hour to watch a cheap ordinary affair among a young man, an older chubby unfaithful wife and a poor husband anyway. The only thing which has shined my eyes is the actor who plays the handsome young man role.

Unless you are a fan of this actress Hattie and like to gossip about her love and sex life, otherwise this film has not much to offer.
