Movie Info

Tonight You're Mine is a free-wheeling rock 'n' roll love story set against the raucous magnificence and unforgettable sounds of Scotland's leading music Festival. The film features Luke Treadaway (Brothers of the Head, Clash of the Titans) as strutting indie star Adam, one half of globally successful duo The Make. Arriving at T in the Park for his gig, during an impromptu backstage fight, Adam finds himself accidentally handcuffed to punky girl-band The Dirty Pink's leader Morello (Natalia Tena

The script is as bland as they come.

While the story is pure contrivance -- two antagonistic performers get handcuffed together, fighting until they fall in love -- the soundtrack is lively and the characters grow on you.

It's a nice, mud-free way to spend a bit of time rocking out in the rain with the Scots.

If the film is to work at all - and it eventually does - the two 27-year-old leads must radiate enough star quality to obviate the ramshackle plot. They just about do.

If only the falling-in-love machinations and character details weren't so wispy, "Tonight You're Mine" might have had more resonance.

"Tonight You're Mine" is as ephemeral as its title - as thin as a jukebox dime but pretty catchy all the same.

Filled with colorful characters that seem real and a surprising sense of spontaneity, spurred in part by its backdrop. Director David MacKenzie has pulled off a movie with the kind of easy charm that most romcoms struggle with.

We're left with the deflated feeling that we've witnessed something initially promising that proves wholly inconsequential.

July 15, 2012 Full Review Source: The Sunday Age

What could have been a perfectly fine premise for a high-key comedy is negated by the fact that both lead characters are incalculably unappealing.

July 13, 2012 Full Review Source: 3AW

The final frames finally rouse a little 'movie magic' but for the bulk of the 80 minutes it takes to get there, this raucous, rambling mess finds its energy from some great music moments... and very little else.

July 12, 2012 Full Review Source:

The climax is almost unbearably joyful. Feel-good movie of the year, thus far? Absolutely.

Unlike most romantic comedies in which the couple-to-be are constantly kept apart, in You Instead they are literally cuffed together. It's an interesting inversion and thanks to the excellent leads, it works a treat

Cheerfully rocking alternative to Hollywood sappy, romantic comedies. . .Treadaway and Tena are a magnetic roller coaster at the center. Casting actors who can rock pays off.

May 28, 2012 Full Review Source:

Director David MacKenzie goes indie both with the washed out video look of the images and the ambient Altmanesque sound design.

It took a bit for me to get into it, but the characters eventually won me over.

The dialogue is terrible. Most of the time I was watching "Tonight You're Mine," I was wishing that whatever band was onstage would drown out these annoying drips.

Improvisational and cold to the touch, the picture is a noble failure, capturing the musty rush of a music festival and all of its madness, with a dreary love story awkwardly wedged into the film, souring the atmosphere.

May 24, 2012 Full Review Source:

The atmosphere might be appealing, but the contrived plotting cancels out most of the enjoyment in this low-budget romantic comedy.

If you're after an interesting cinematic experience about convincing characters facing some sort of meaningful human dilemma, it'd be best to keep on looking.

"I've known her ten hours and I know her better than you," the hero tells his romantic rival in this contrived bore, by which time you'll also feel like ten hours have passed.

The lack of structure makes the already thin material feel even more so.

Audience Reviews for Tonight You're Mine

A very entertaining, feel good, romantic Indie movie. There is good music, funny scenes, and interesting caricatures of people. I guess if you don't like low-budget Independent films, you probably won't like this. There is nothing Hollywood about it...which is good in my book.

This movie was fun and brainless. I enjoy movies like these on stressful days. It was funny with likable characters as well making it that more enjoyable. It had great music to boot. I wish there was more music and that it was a bit longer, but still it was a lot of fun and I would watch it again if given the chance. I loved the two leads together. They had great chemistry. But my favorite was Matthew Baynton as Tyko. He cracked me up. So did Gavin Mitchell as Boaby, the creepy manager. So much fun. See it if you get the chance.

Although "Tonight You're Mine" could have been so much more, given the Indie, romantic nature of the film, it falls victim to a thin plot and an even thinner supporting cast. The two leads, Luke Treadaway and Natalia Tena, play off one another well enough to believe their sudden changes of heart, but the feature length run-time of this film attempts to intertwine uninteresting characters into the mix as well, eventually leading to a predictable conclusion. What saves this film is the relevant punk rock music, an actual music festival as a backdrop, and an "old-fashion" look and feel of the film, helping display it as a timeless piece.
