Reviews
Mine: Wonderful movie. Shows London to great effect. Very touching and sweet. Some very funny scenes. Paltrow is top notch as is the entire supporting cast. This is one I really wish I saw in the theater. VERY re-watchable.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Likable romantic comedy explores--in parallel scenes--what happens when Paltrow catches her boyfriend sleeping with another woman, and what would have happened if she'd missed her train and not walked in at that moment. The doltish boyfriend (Lynch) and his extremely bitchy paramour (Tripplehorn) are overstated, unsympathetic characters who bring down the otherwise bright proceedings. Paltrow, sporting a British accent, is delightful; so is Scotsman Hannah. Writing and directing debut for Howitt.
