A poor film that tries to do too much
26 February 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

You see James Nesbit on the front cover of the DVD, you know him from comedic fare like 'Cold Feet' so you give this film a go.

Oh dear, what a bad decision. Despite only being just over 80 minutes in length this film drags. It's a clichéd story idea to begin with, but then proceeds to try to be funny/sweet/sentimental all at the same time, and fails at many of those points. I found myself disinterested with the story about midway through.

It's a shame because everyone involved gives it their all, but they can't help the fact that this film isn't that great, or original. I can't recommend it to people as a good film to watch I'm afraid.
