User Review

Very poor

Rating: 3/10


Oh dear. Yet another failed attempt to do a 'Four Weddings'. Take a
selection of 'hilarious' middle-class characters, throw in a bit of
sexual experimentation, some London landmarks and a barrage of romantic
clichés, and you have the formula for this soggy mass of mediocrity.
The script is banal, the characters unappealing, and the hodge-podge of
nationalities baffling (would you believe English, American, Canadian,
Australian, Indian and Eurasian characters all together in anything
except the Olympics?). Martin Freeman plays a remarkably unsympathetic
character, and has little to do except pull his usual variety of faces.
The problem with the British film industry is that it's only possible
to get funding for this sort of gloop, or for gangster films.
