Broad in some ways but captures the nature of settled relationships well
13 August 2017 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

As the title, and the opening fart joke, suggests, this is a broad comedy which features a sexual hookup at its core. The plot sees a couple turning 30, who are very much into staying in watching television and being comfortable. Perhaps motivated by the milestone approaching, Mel decides she would like to try a 3-sum to spice up sex, so the couple start to look for someone.

In terms of jokes and events, this film is pretty broad, and that is not always a good thing. However rather than individual jokes or scenes (such as the fart at the start), the film works because it is consistent in its recognizable base. That feeling of being comfortable and settled and lazy, but at the same time feeling like it shouldn't be okay is something almost everyone can relate to once you get to that stage (30, earlier, or later). The lead actress in particular gets that, and she makes the most of the script and direction to deliver on that aspect. The specific jokes etc are good, but it is that sense of awkwardness and relationship that make it work.

Not brilliant, and a bit too broad and good-natured, but McGlynn's script and direction find a very good spot with Hunter.
