It's all fun and games, basically, but a pleasing diversion for those who can wade through the thick London accents.

The screenplay is a shade smarter than that of the average romantic comedy, and there are plenty of funny lines and scenes.

While you sense the writer lurking behind these twists and oddball moments, the film is not without its shaggy charm.
