Hampstead plays matchmaker with a pair of talented veterans, but the sum of their efforts isn't enough to overcome a deeply mediocre story.

Eccentricity triumphs in the end, leaving Annie's ghost fluttering happily evermore.
More proof that Richard Curtis's style of comedy-drama is very difficult to imitate.
Don't come looking for social realism. This is an unapologetically fluffy film.
Keaton's terrific, and it's sweet and airy and so unhurried you really feel like you've had a nice afternoon in the long grasses and cool breezes on the edge of the city. You wouldn't want to live there, though.
These yin and yang performers complement each other nicely, like tangy rhubarb and sweet, thick custard. It's just a shame that the vehicle which has brought them together is so insipid.
Diane Keaton and Brendan Gleeson aren't an obvious match; despite their combined lovability, this slender romcom doesn't prove otherwise.
It is bringing nothing fresh - just hollow echoes of Richard Curtis, but sorely lacking any of his willingness to occasionally bite through the schmaltz with some nice, savage British humour.
But Hopkins... is not prepared to stray too far from the path he has set, with the result that we end up in a wholly predictable, perfectly pleasant, crashingly bland place.
... combines the Annie Hall-ish self-confidence of Diane Keaton with the grunts of a bearded Brendan Gleeson... [Full review in Spanish]
Keaton and Gleeson are simply too good for there not to be some fun here, despite a leisurely pace, much hanging on a rather arcane piece of British law, and Emily's eventually rather annoying habit of failing to speak up for herself.
Much as we love romantic comedies about older-age couples, this over-formulated dollop of treacle makes you pine for the hijinx of It's Complicated.
Keaton and Gleeson deliver charming performances, with her as another sweet but slightly nervy type and him as one of his hairy, scary, bear-like chaps with (you saw it coming) a heart of gold.
