So although this an English romantic comedy, I have to say it was delightfully cute. Although extremely awkward, it was a different yet endearing romantic comedy. The plot was creative, and I enjoyed the double semi-traditional romantic comedy in one. It isn’t just about one side of the marriage going out and cheating, falling in love, and then trying to make the marriage work only to find out they really do love each other. Sometimes things just don’t work out and I love that it doesn’t here. Rose Byrnes was amazing and of course one of my favorite actors Simon Baker was just as smooth as always. Anna Faris played the awkward ugly duckling perfectly and Rafe Spall was perfectly odd. It was all so awkwardly believable. Overall, if you like indie movies and/or chick flicks this is the one for you. Plus you can rent it on iTunes, so a movie at home – even better.
