    Maybe someday I will read Noel Coward's play on which this is based, just to see if the play itself is bad as the movie. It took tremendous willpower to sit through the whole thing. I don't blame the actors, though, the screenplay and direction just got it wrong, pointless and sometimes even embarrassing. The redeeming qualities are the costumes, set and vintage production, and a very beautiful Jessica Biel. She, Colin Firth and Kristin Scott Thomas could have pulled this off with a better screenplay and direction.

    Who rates these movies on this site? If it is rated bad, then I watch for sure and it is usually a very good movie. This movie was cute, romantic, and everything that good entertainment should be.

    An OK flick to pass the time. Set in 1928, it's the story of a besotted younger British man and older exciting American woman who get married and end up on his parent's great house door step. Some inventive and amusing moments, but not enough to erase Jessica Biel's dreadful acting.

    The movie is a showcase for the brilliant Noel Coward. It is full of dry, pithy humor when life seems so cruel. The acting was first-rate. Anyone who thinks Jessica Biel can't act should watch this flick. Highly recommended!

    Maybe not as good as I expected, but still fresh and sweet...:)

    This is a dull, baffling movie. The script is dull and the characters are completely flat, but every now and again there'll be a bizarre twist in the story or a weird CGI scene that wakes you up. It's like the director wanted to make Baz Luhrman's The Great Gatsby and then he chickened out.

    Like the British food chastised in the film, the movie itself had too many bland grey beige bits... story problems mostly. Biel and Firth put forth excellent performances however, and are the tasty bits and sweet dessert.
