Martin Dyer is a very ordinary man with a very ordinary life. An insurance Loss Adjuster for many years, he spends his time assessing other people's problems and ignoring his own. His wife Angie aspires to greater things and when finances hit rock bottom, she leaves him for a suave loan shark one week before Christmas. Martin is crest fallen but forced into continuing his day by the overly exuberant company secretary, who has scheduled several claims for Martin to validate. With a heavy heart, Martin sets off but his day drastically goes from bad to worse with a catalogue of extraordinary and humorous encounters with a flirtatious and rather amorous widow, a corrupt Doctor, a lascivious female escort and a dead rat. It is only at the funeral of a client that Martin has an epiphany; and with the help of his unlikely friendship with a teenage thief and perhaps a sprinkling of Christmas magic, life suddenly changes in a truly remarkable way.

Bad acting and a plot with no sense or passion
10 December 2020 | by coombsstephenSee all my reviews

What a shame to see a British film with a reasonable cast fail so badly. I have rarely seen a film with a plot that is so slow, weak and nonsensical. The film lacked any punch whatsoever.

The acting in the film is truly awful. The main character is so over acted it's painful and the rest of the cast give little feeling for any empathy.

Some of the scenes tried to be dramatic and poignant but failed miserably, as did the point of the whole story. Even the twist at the end was so obvious it was telegraphed.
