It's all a bit too quiet, a bit too reserved, possibly a bit too British indie. One gets the sense, from this and many other British indie romcoms produced around the same time, that there was an almost pathological fear of 'doing a Four Weddings'. Thus whilst careful to avoid any Hugh Grant stereotypes, the leading men are now confused, but charmless and the women are finally fully developed, but unlikeable. Also the only song is by Take That...seriously?

Written almost entirely in relationship cliches, which either makes it very bad or very real.

Unromantic and not very funny. I'm surprised this got a theatrical release. A charmless lead character and little in the way of plot. Don't waste your time.

There's nothing special about the story or the film making, but it does serve as a warning about relationships.

and let that be a lesson to ya. This movie comprised of a multitude of different attitudes to love, not just the one. Although , the one, is the one that mostly touches some nerve of my past personal experiences in that field. It depicts how easily things can change, from the confidence that comes from 'having it all' , to then having nothing. You can see from the beginning that David is a selfish mug who doesn't realize what he's got until it's too late.

I liked it although very indulgent but had that dark, dull London feel about it. Reminded me of Mike Leigh.

I really liked this and I think Stephen Mangan is a great leading man, he should be in more British Films in a leading role! The ending was a bit abrupt, but that is often the case in 'slice of life' indie films like this. I really connected with the film and lead character so, yes, I did really enjoy it.

2 out of five is generous because I normally like the guy. but in this he's just depressed and depressed doesn't make for great comedy. (well it can, but in this case it doesn't). It's boring and you keep waiting for something to happen, and then it ends. Like a 1hour pilot for a tv show they didn't bother commissioning.

Gets a star because I like him in Green Wing, but nothing here deserves any credit. Filled with more boring shit than a poo sandwich without mayo.

found it dull, but funny in places bit disappointed considering the character of guy secretan brilliantly played inthe hilarious green wing series, could live without it

Great story but not enough done with it. Becomes pointless in the end to watch and there is no happy ending

love and relationships in london as a guy breaks up with his long term women, but other women finishes with him too, a wooody allen type film look at relationships, some nice moments in a brief running time

Very good. I didnt think it would be if I'm being honest but it was amusing and interesting and it's well worth a look. Another film from good ol Blighty !!

Learn to act, mate, then I might watch more than 10 minutes of your next film.

Very British, very sad, funny love comedy.

An amusing offbeat comedy, although tonally uncertain. Does it want to be a crisp Brit rom-com complete with stuttering leading man and several quirky situations or a serious study of human relationships and male immaturity? It winds up becoming more of the former than the latter, while saddling us with an ending that doesn't sit right with it's overall approach. To this end, the film becomes all about the journey with no destination, prompting one to ask what the point is, aside from a chance to stage some comic situations. In fact, the first ten minutes of plot could have been a good way to stage the entire film, with our main character trying to maintain two relationships at once and finally screwing it up by the halfway mark, the third act being the aftermath that is the main body of the finished film. Hit and miss, but entertaining, just not the quirky indie it wants to be.

I really enjoyed this, it was gentle and funny and easy to watch. Probably a chick flick though ...

Brilliant, 5 stars! A must see, plus it stars the fabulous Piechowiak sisters, what more reason do you need to see it?!

Flat brit rom-com. Likened to Woody Allen, but nowhere near.
