Storyline

Two men (Kevin McKidd, John Simm) in London decide to meet women by answering a dating ad. They meet two women (Amelia Curtis, Louisa Milwood) who use the ads to scam men out of cash, gifts and food. One immediately sees through the women's ruse, but the other becomes infatuated with his date and continues to pursue her. She in turn tells her friend that she is just playing him for bigger plans. The film turns on whether she has actually fallen for him or if she continues to be a user. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Pleasantly surprised
3 October 2006 | by lt455See all my reviews

I had always been curious to see this film but the time didn't arise till i found it on ebay for a really nice price. Very few people seem to have heard of this film but it's worth anyone's time, it's funny, witty, tasteful and will connect to people with something you can relate to, at least it did many times with me (Kate Winslet getting her breasts out remark is one which comes to mind). But i think the relation at least us British will feel, is because it's represents our culture in a real yet joyful way.

The film deals with relationships in a realistic way which will be a joy to watch for anybody who's been on the dating cycle. There's something about the characters which seems so real, it's hard to describe, but it's hard to imagine these aren't real people which live and hang out in the places they are set in the film.

This film was produced before Human Traffic which is a film which will appear to have many similarities, especially the star wars speech scene, which if I'm not mistaken even has the same actors! This is a modest film in its delivery but is touching nevertheless.

I wouldn't really say i've many negative points, if any. The music throughout is good and tasteful editing makes the film make the characters seem even more real, this film comes highly recommended from me and my friends who i watched it with.
