A very funny film
10 October 2010 | by selffamilySee all my reviews

I really liked this film - I found it laugh-out-loud funny in parts, as it has a very quick wit to it. The casting cannot be faulted, the sets are perfect and of course the storyline is an elegant piece of entertaining fluff. I don't want to go into immense detail about the plot, as others have done (that's the ten line minimum rule I suspect)but there were some surprises. I didn't recall that the couple had been married as suggested in previous reviews, I had thought that they were lovers, but obviously I could be wrong. It was a rented DVD and absolutely worth it. If I get the chance, I might add it to my collection.
