Critic Review - Empire Magazine Australasia

Some great moments of comic timing provide for a pleasant, if flawed, bittersweet comedy of errors.

As is already stated above, it is truly refreshing to see the movie being set in windy Wellington, such beautiful scenery. However, what isn't stated above is that Joel Edgerton did a great job on giving his character form. We see a man clueless about his feelings for a woman that isn't his wife, not uncomfortable. Him breaking down in the end, when he realizes what kind of mess he's in, is truly touching. Besides that, seeing love from a male's perspective, accompanied by Harry's cynical humor, adds up to making this movie different than other average comedy dramas. A untypical comedy drama, underlined with some great cynicism and humor, a movie meant for the bigger audiences. Go watch it.
