Director David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada (2006), Marley & Me (2008)) teams with Screenwriter Justin Zackham (The Bucket List (2007)) to tell the story of amateur opera singer Paul Potts (James Corden), who went from meek shop clerk to international superstar after his stunning performance on Britain's Got Talent (2007) became a viral video phenomenon.
Since the film is based on a true story, you already know what the outcome will be from the starting point, so it leaves room for very little surprises. Nevertheless, the film is a wonderful feel-good movie. James Corden is perfectly cast as Paul Potts. The love story is beautiful and the characters are very likable. A delightful comedy, actually.
