Movie Info

Desperate to be married, Fran was supposed to be on his honeymoon. Instead he's single and slouching around London, entrenched in a bro-mance with his two best friends. At 29, Fran was sure he'd offered his fiancée everything, but she rejected his heart and his two-bedroom flat in Kentish Town, and called it all off four weeks before their wedding. Fran is convinced that she'll see the error of her ways...until he bumps into her with her new boyfriend, and any dreams he might have had of reconciliation are dashed. He has no choice but to move on and try to meet someone new. Meanwhile, his sometimes neurotic best friends, Ben and Jon, are suffering the opposite of Fran's predicament - their girlfriends are mad about them, but the guys appear lukewarm about their girls and are forever on the lookout for someone else. Whether trawling for talent at a Rabbi's house, being mistaken as part of a gay couple or negotiating advances from his lovelorn neighbour upstairs...

Critic Reviews for Honeymooner

All Critics (9)

The script is drab and aimless, but like its moping hero, Honeymooner has a certain shaggy charm and doesn't wear out its welcome.

It reminded me of Graham Fellows's 1978 novelty song celebrating self-pity, "Jilted John". Quite a pleasant memory.

Jan 26, 2011 | Full Review…

A modest look at love and friendship but Spector manages to tell it with a generous heart and a sharp-eye for what makes relationships tick.

Jan 24, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A low-key but engaging relationship drama, Honeymooner is light on plot but strong on character, thanks to a sharply observed script and superb performances from Kearns, Coghill and Weaver.

Jan 21, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Fantastically unambitious, cliched and snooze-inducing.

Jan 20, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The observations on male double standards all seem rather obvious and the arbitrary resolution comes across as the purest contrivance.
