Dependable vs passionate
27 November 2016 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

I confess I wanted to watch this because it's Prince Harry's girlfriend in the lead role - Meghan Markle. I don't watch Suits so this was a chance to see what she is like on screen and she is quite charming It's quite a cute story about a woman relying on a dating handbook and juggling 2 suitors. One is a dependable and sensible type, one is more spontaneous and passionate. Guess which one she ends up with. It's quite interesting to see the differences between the two. Her choice isn't totally convincing and the guys are a little stereotypical one dimensional.

Okay for one watch.
