I Love You Too Reviews
Pete Hilliar was not featured as much as I had expected, which was probably a good thing as, whilst he's usually very funny, he isn't a strong actor.
This movie is probably worth a bit if your time, but it shouldn't be your first option.
The cast is uniformly good. Brendan Cowell and Helliar seem to be playing brash versions of themselves, but import Peter Dinklage is fabulous as grieving Charlie. Megan Gale is also fine in the role of Italian supermodel Francesca Moretti. This may not be too much of a stretch for the model-turned-thespian, but her scenes with Dinklage inject heart which is lacking from much of the rest of the film. The statuesque model meeting with her diminutive admirer is genuinely touching, and their final moments together are beautifully judged.
Even though he doesn't seem to realise it, adding to the rich tapestry of Jim's life are those close to him, such as his boss (Steve Bisley) and put-upon sister and landlord, Marie (Bridie Carter).
The film has a few genuine laugh-out-loud moments and, despite a few misgivings you may have for Jim and company, you can't help but cheer for everyone involved by the end credits. While steeped in rom-com clichÃ (C), the finale is as poignant as they come.
