Hilarious, heart-warming fun.
31 January 2014 | by milicentbrovovichSee all my reviews

This film is great fun. I am surprised there is only one other review for it currently, which is why I'm writing this one.

A colourful, unique rom-com with genuinely likable characters, particularly the lead actress who is charming, sweet, awkward and hilarious whenever it's called for.

I thoroughly enjoyed this film and would definitely see it again. I was smiling and laughing throughout the whole thing.

If you like comedies or rom-coms or feel good films you will *love* this.

8/10 for what it is, a warm, funny romantic comedy which never feels clichéd or forced or formulaic, and even if it was you'd be having too much fun to notice!

Go watch it.
