Lovely understated comedy
26 April 2016 | by PithyonelinerSee all my reviews

A return to form for Peter Kay, and I was pleasantly surprised by his costar Sian Gibson who held her own.

Car Share rates as the best new British Comedy of 2015, building into an unlikely romance - two ordinary Co-op (?) employees finding each other on the daily commute.

Filled with subtle throw-away gags, many hidden in the scenery or soundtrack and the occasional surreal daydream the whole effect is adorable and heartwarming!

Can't wait for the US remake with some better looking stars - Ashton Kutcher & Jennifer Anniston perhaps?

Perhaps leave this one to the Lancastrians...
