The lives of three life-long friends are thrown into chaos by the arrival of Martha, a beautiful young American woman who arrives in London looking to find herself. Joseph Fiennes and Monica Potter star in this hilarious and touching romantic comedy.
When Monica Potter first read for director Nick Hamm, she did a few scenes ten different ways. See more »
When Martha and Daniel meet at the curb outside the airport, there is an extra carrying a large gray bag. He is walking away, going to Daniel's right.
When Martha and Daniel begin talking the same extra (minus the bag) is walking away from Martha, going the opposite direction he was before. The camera cuts to Daniel and then back to Martha and the extra has disappeared completely. See more »
Of course I wasn't alright. I'd just been knocked unconscious and now an American, who'd never driven a stick shift, was driving my car down the wrong side of the road.

I happened to flick across the beginning of this film last night on cable. I missed the title, but saw "Joesph Fiennes", "Rufus Sewell", and "Ray Winstone" - and decided it was worth a look.
Though the beginning was a tad slow (the first five minutes makes you think it's going to be very depressing), this is actually a sweet comedy about love and friendship and the nature of "love at first sight".
Joesph Fiennes is heart-stoppingly beautiful, with his lovely puppy-dog eyes put to good use in his character as an overly-sensitive young man wedged between two aggressive friends who are less-than-sensitive.
I dislike most "romance" films; yet this one was different, for a reason I can't quite put my finger on. It tugs at your heart, and for all it's improbable situations (de rigeur in most romantic comedy), it rings true to life.
Definitely a good film for watching on a rainy afternoon.
