This Scottish romcom is a great advert for Glasgow, but it delivers an awful warning to filmmakers about shooting a script that's seriously unready.
A trifling comedy about writer's block that aims for a blend of Richard Curtis-style cheeriness and arch literary satire, and winds up mostly drawing a blank.
It's main problem in truth stems from the fact that Gillan and Webber have no spark between them whatsoever.
Brit romcom about writer's block has brief nudity, cliches.
The cast gives it what they can, but they are underserved by choppy direction and a simplistic script that never breaks the surface.
The film's ending was indeed a happy moment, but not in the intended manner.
Contrived, manic and unfunny the film also flounders because of the lack of chemistry between an awkward Gillan and a wooden Weber.
That convention-flouting title misleads: this winsome affair lags lamentably close to the modern romcom average.
This may look like a rom-com, with its obvious plotting and over-cute characters, but it's eerily lacking any actual romance or comedy.
Ultimately worth seeing thanks to a charming lead performance from Karen Gillan, strong comic support from Iain De Caestecker and a handful of decent gags.
It may not have the bite of a Bridesmaids, but in Gillan's sparky performance there's enough to keep you engaged for the duration.
McKay's film often feels like Richard Curtis-lite for the New Girl generation - minus the jokes and memorable characters.
