How to make a feel-good film.
24 May 2014 | by (Salisbury, U.K) – See all my reviews

Just for once, every so often, it's nice to walk away from razzle dazzle high-tech wizardry and enjoy a straightforward, hugely entertaining film that can stand up on its own merits, without a gargantuan budget, and without several studios working day and night on CG or other effects. If, like me, you find British comedies films normally fit neatly into one of two camps..very good or genuinely terrible, you'll be pleasantly surprised by this little gem. The acting is superb throughout, the storyline is plausible, and the movie rolls along at a steady pace without seeming bloated or skimping on details. The comedy is very much in the detail here, not always in the spoken word or action - which is refreshing to see, and typically British. I'd imagine that this film would appeal to those of us that feel slightly disenchanted with increasingly formulaic Hollywood churn-outs, and those that like a feel-good flick, but can't seem to find one under the groaning mountain of horror films. I realize its 'uncool' to admit to enjoying films of this nature these days. I fully understand that I'd earn far more cool-points by enthusing over the latest cheap zero-storyline hack-and-slash part 8 movie, but I've seen enough of these to honestly say I never want to see another ever again. These days, when life seems increasingly short of laughs, and even escapism isn't catered for, films like this are a welcome relief and a breath of fresh air. Avoid those who'll over-analyse, over-criticize, and otherwise dissect this slice of romantic comedy, and just buy/ rent it. I think you'll be glad you did!
