Cooler delivery than the material actually deserves
A guy is just dumped and laments that it would end this way with him alone forever; until that is he spots a fresh-faced girl effortlessly getting onto a tram who could be the one for him. Unfortunately his day-dreaming means he misses said tram and sets out on a massive shortcut to catch her up and claim the happiness that is rightfully theirs.
The first thing to note in this film is how well directed it is. It looks good from start to finish and the tone of it is pretty cool throughout even the end titles are pretty cleverly done and come over as well designed but yet still with an air of effortless cool to them! This aspect is worth noting because it is by far the strongest aspect and it covers the weaker parts to a point. The construct of the film is equally cool and the comedy is rooted in a truth it is easy to "fall in love" if you are basing it on a fleeting look, a pretty smile or a cute face; indeed our character falls in love several times here.
The material could have been stronger though. There are some funny moments and i quite enjoyed it but ultimately it didn't feel polished enough in terms of content I wanted it to be just a little bit "more" in that regard. There is a reason why the look and design of it stuck in my mind more than the content. Still amusing for what it is but the design and direction are both stronger than I thought the material actually deserved.
