Afternoon movie for when you're feeling sick
Okay, I'm only watching this because I adore Gugu Mbatha-Raw. She's terrific in everything she's in. But otherwise it's an absolutely meh film which, despite my usual tendency to bawl at sad films, does nothing for me.
There's the occasional amusing line of dialogue, which helps. But, for some reason, I just felt distanced from the whole thing. Not enough character development? Maybe it's too corny? After all it's nothing new. It's all been done before.
The cast is good, and they all put in a lot of effort, but the whole is smaller than the sum of its parts. Gugu is wasted but is still nice to look at and does a good job with mediocre material. Actually, her character is really annoying.
