.. don't pay too much attention to some of the negative reviews.. watch it.. you will be pleasantly surprised
AFG!!.. this film sets the bar high. There's several very good reasons why this romantic comedy is as totally enjoyable as it is... Sarah Snook.. bit.ly/134TuuA ..a rising star... and Ryan Kwanten. They are both such great actors, there are little subtle inflections and mannerisms that just cannot be taught or directed, but are the essence of a well acted performance... and in addition, they are just so well paired in this film (it's hoped they soon get together again). Working with an enormously entertaining script, you WILL laugh!! And their love-making scenes are just so totally natural and sincere. Numerous rom-com's don't come anywhere near close to being worthwhile viewing as this one. Not usually mentioned, kudos to the outstanding camera and editing crews, their exceptional work in this instance is impossible to ignore, and when its this good it makes the entire film feel totally alive. And WTF!.. its got one really choice ending.. (final ten minutes, her eyes say it all). So do yourself a huge favor, and give it a try, even though you might not be totally into the RC genre. This is a movie for adults of all ages... and btw, listening carefully, it has one of the best accompanying soundtracks in films. PS...don't wait too long before watching it again, then you'll fully come to appreciate what a truly marvelous production it is.
