Storyline

Jenny Seagrove plays a widow who is defying her friends attempts to find her a new parter. Charles Dance is part of her circle of friends and decides that he is the one for her. He is also in the fortunate position that he is her dentist who just happens to use hypnosis on his patients. Having no luck using conventional methods to win her affections, he resorts to hypnosis which has unforseen and amusing results. Antony Edwards is a failing sports psychologist who gets caught up in the events through a series of chance meetings and the unpredictable results of the hypnosis.

Boring: a poorly directed film with an even worse script.
18 March 1999 | by bez-3See all my reviews

This is an appallingly dull film which I guess is why they spent so much effort choosing different titles that might help to market it better on either side of the Atlantic.

I wish they'd never bothered.

Nobody likes seeing middle aged lecherous men getting randy and this is exactly what it divulges in. The direction is stilted and mundane and the script is truly awful. Pure cheese. This is the worst British romantic comedy I have ever seen. If this is all that we (I am British) can offer then we'd better stick to drama or otherwise put money into buying good scripts. A load of rubbish.
