Storyline

A very cute movie about a "want to stay single" very successful food critic that believes he finally finds the one he was looking for. As time of happiness moves on there are various real life sub plots that keep the mistakes in life coming back to what many might feel is destiny for what it should be at some point. It leaves that to the viewer's opinion at the end which I feel is an obvious but unanticipated conclusion. Written by Leslie Miles

Not impressed
2 March 2014 | by pnck71See all my reviews

Just saw it at the Dublin Film Festival and, to be honest, wasn't very impressed. It was shown in the Irish category so I thought it would be one of those Irish films that are usually low-budget but personal, fresh and original. This one was none of that. It would be more in line with Hugh Grant's romcoms. I mean it's nice to watch with your missus, plenty of jokes thrown in, but it's more "one of those films" than "must not miss". I am not sure if it qualifies for a "Dublin film" either. You need to be Irish or at least someone with deep love for Dublin to make a truly "Dublin film". Here, the director/writers are not Irish and hardly been to Ireland before the film. They were just told (according to Q&A session) that Ireland is a cheaper place to film in, so they hired an Irish writer, changed the background to Dublin, and voilà - got an Irish film. Kind of cynical. So it's more "filmed in Dublin". Although the location crew did make a decent job of trying to avoid the usual clichés. So at least, you'll get some nice shots of the modern Dublin.
