An unexpected gem
9 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is different and I seriously doubt it had anything like the million pound budget it claims to have on here but don't let it's relatively low budget put you off. Right from the genius opening scene with Richard E Grant, who I so wish would do more edgy comedy which for me is when he's at his best, the film takes you on a twisty journey that is tricky to predict because it doesn't actually follow the typical romantic comedy well trodden plot, it almost does, which for me is what makes it so clever. It remains a step ahead of you the whole time while drawing you to believe it's taking you on a journey you already know the destination of. The blonde is pretty spectacular but for me, the actress who plays Patch is just drop dead gorgeous, major crush! Some major laugh out loud set pieces and a couple of moments where the proverbial envelope is most certainly pushed! For me worth a second watch but this time with my mates rather than my girl.
