Filled with colorful characters that seem real and a surprising sense of spontaneity, spurred in part by its backdrop. Director David MacKenzie has pulled off a movie with the kind of easy charm that most romcoms struggle with.

We're left with the deflated feeling that we've witnessed something initially promising that proves wholly inconsequential.

What could have been a perfectly fine premise for a high-key comedy is negated by the fact that both lead characters are incalculably unappealing.

The final frames finally rouse a little 'movie magic' but for the bulk of the 80 minutes it takes to get there, this raucous, rambling mess finds its energy from some great music moments... and very little else.

The climax is almost unbearably joyful. Feel-good movie of the year, thus far? Absolutely.

Unlike most romantic comedies in which the couple-to-be are constantly kept apart, in You Instead they are literally cuffed together. It's an interesting inversion and thanks to the excellent leads, it works a treat

The script is as bland as they come.

Cheerfully rocking alternative to Hollywood sappy, romantic comedies. . .Treadaway and Tena are a magnetic roller coaster at the center. Casting actors who can rock pays off.

Director David MacKenzie goes indie both with the washed out video look of the images and the ambient Altmanesque sound design.

It took a bit for me to get into it, but the characters eventually won me over.

The dialogue is terrible. Most of the time I was watching "Tonight You're Mine," I was wishing that whatever band was onstage would drown out these annoying drips.

While the story is pure contrivance -- two antagonistic performers get handcuffed together, fighting until they fall in love -- the soundtrack is lively and the characters grow on you.

Improvisational and cold to the touch, the picture is a noble failure, capturing the musty rush of a music festival and all of its madness, with a dreary love story awkwardly wedged into the film, souring the atmosphere.

The atmosphere might be appealing, but the contrived plotting cancels out most of the enjoyment in this low-budget romantic comedy.

If you're after an interesting cinematic experience about convincing characters facing some sort of meaningful human dilemma, it'd be best to keep on looking.

"I've known her ten hours and I know her better than you," the hero tells his romantic rival in this contrived bore, by which time you'll also feel like ten hours have passed.

The lack of structure makes the already thin material feel even more so.

It's a nice, mud-free way to spend a bit of time rocking out in the rain with the Scots.

If the film is to work at all - and it eventually does - the two 27-year-old leads must radiate enough star quality to obviate the ramshackle plot. They just about do.

If only the falling-in-love machinations and character details weren't so wispy, "Tonight You're Mine" might have had more resonance.
