Perfectly made for TV
21 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

Having read the book by Sisman, it's such a shame that they wasted such talented actors.

The script and some of the overly crazy idea camera shots are completely wrong and do not do the novel justice.

Anna Friel's funny looking California tan (odd with the slightly red brown hair)looks about as authentic as the the scriptwriter..was it their first job? One has to wonder.

It is overly sentimental in parts, some additions make the movie much more interesting in detail such as additional animals.

The novel gives little nuances of romance that the reader falls for and the same small hints do not completely convert to screen well..the sofa-bed conversation in Picture Perfect was much better conceived and carried out.

Anna Friel is also in need of a very American wonder bra in parts- they could have incorporated an appropriate/not-so-subtle advert into the movie.

The essentials are nevertheless there but if you love the book I advise caution.. I didn't mind it, would I watch it again? Maybe, if I was incredibly bored and stuck without anything to do after 36 hours - yeah, then I would. Obviously after watching other good-better movies I own I might give it a go but to be honest I'm more tempted to watch Ghostbusters or My Girl...

Watch and decide for yourself!
