Not what I was expecting
22 April 2003 | by rach081084See all my reviews

Having read and loved the Marian Keyes novel was slightly disappointed when i heard that the only thing the book and the(made for TV) movie had in common was the title and the fact that she has a baby. Fair enough the two stories are fairly similar she is Irish, has a baby, falls in love with someone who is not the one who got her pregnant, moves back to ireland and so on. The fact is the little details that have been changed are the ones that get me. The names of the two men have been changed round in the book Adam is James and vice versa. James dosen't actually leave her until she has had the baby. Overall I thought the film was well made and enjoyable, but I recommend reading the book before seeing the tv version.
