The best sleep I never had
19 August 2017 | by colin_marksSee all my reviews

Give this film a miss - unless you like (what my wife calls "Chick-Flicks for Grown-Ups". What a load of sugary-sweet nonsense and a waste of time. All of the actors are far better than their characters allowed them to be - with such a weak script and such a predictable plot, this 90 minute film was about 85 minutes too long. The only saving grace, perhaps, was the appearance of Hampstead Heath and the surrounding are which is fast becoming the most frequently filmed location.
