Perfect date movie.
13 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Lovely gentle film with a great soundtrack. The plot may be a little obvious and there's a few holes in it here and there, but there are some fantastically hilarious bits in it and some of the cinematography is stunning, possibly at the expense of some of Gavin Mitchell's best bits, which have been edited out. It's just a feel good movie with a happy ending and a great batch of songs.

Maguire is great at showing the frustration of his own mistakes and learned to play the guitar just for this role.

Ford Kiernan hams it up magnificently and has some of the best scenes, although his Still Game colleague Gavin Mitchell is also clearly enjoying himself in his role as the hotel manager.
