Romantic Comedy that worked for me
18 June 2014 | by dfgremnantsSee all my reviews

I will keep it short and to the point:

Things I love:


Karen Gillan

The location

The Romance

Writers life

Karen famous nude scene (nice ass by the way)

Things I don't love:

Feels long

Sometimes I can't understand the damn accent

Cliché scenes

The writers fans

Didn't fancy her dad

To conclude, the first stage was interesting to some extend but then it fell off thanks to the duration and the twist, by which time I stopped watching the movie and continued working, before going to bed I decided just to watch few more minutes and that's the end of it, from that point onwards I didn't stop until I finished it. I guess I rooted for the guy and really wanted a happy ending in the end. It's sort of emotional but none of the points worked for me, it was more like romance/comedy which is what I wanted to see. Karen is hot as always, got a sweet spot for her (dig red heads) I do like the lead and his style. I don't know this movie which worked for me and I actually feel a lot better after watching it.

I do recall saying HELL YEAH at the end and proclaiming my desire to meet someone like the lead or at least share what they had.

So, for me it was worth the watch.
