Storyline

Yorkshire writer Kate finds out her biological clock is ticking down the same day that her husband leaves her. To get over the financial crisis this creates she takes in car-dealer Dave. He's homeless as Kate's husband has moved in with his wife. This leaves the problem of how to get promptly pregnant. Surely not with increasingly interesting Dave. They can't even agree on a baby's name - he thinks Fanny is silly and she finds Elvis, well, inconceivable. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

Oh Kay!
23 September 2009 | by simonrosenbaumSee all my reviews

This is a feel good movie or at least that's what I think it's trying to be, unfortunately it has a few things that keeps getting in the way. Firstly Kerry Fox gives one of the most uneven performances I've seen in a long time and the script also plays it's part in not always finding the right tone. I hate to say it being a huge fan of Kay Mellor's previous work but maybe another director with more experience in making films would have known how to pull it altogether to make it a smoother ride. There is still many things to enjoy not least the always reliable Ray Winstone and Ben Daniels is also more good than bad. At least it does look great especially in those country scenes and the soundtrack with Catatonia's Cerys Matthews contributing some songs is pretty good. It's just a shame that there were very few genuine laughs and the characters weren't believable enough to ever move you. (5/10)
