A Juicy take on the WatermelonBy a customer from Berkshire , 07 Feb 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Very pleasantly surprised by this take on Marian Keys novel. I think it does the novel justice and Anne Friel plays a great feisty spirited Irishwomen while Jamie Draven is equally endearing. Her family are hilarious and compassionate in equal measure at her predicament and played brilliantly by an all irish cast. Looking forward to the next TV adaptation of Marian Keys novels-especially if this director is back on board.

12 minutes of torture!By wildthing22 (13 reviews) , 17 Feb 2013I love Marian Keyes books and Watermelon is one of my favourites so I was pleased to see this,it could have been perfect for a Sunday afternoon. Sadly within 12 minutes I had enough. The story is about as close to the book as Anna Friel walking past a branch of Waterstones!
Absolute GuffBy RabM (1 review) , 15 Feb 2013Had to turn this absolute tripe off. Terrible characters, terrible script, terrible plot. Ten times worse if you are Irish, as the stereotyping makes grim watching, to be sure. ;o(
Don't expect this to be like the book.By Janelouisestockdale (15 reviews) , 08 Dec 2012Loved the book but the film was disappointing. The story line was so far removed from the book that I didn't even recognise it.
not for meBy a customer , 08 Dec 2012Ok i may be mistaken but watermelon was all about the husband leaving Clair after she had just had the baby and her overcoming that. I couldnt watch the film as i was expecting something similar after 5 mins of watching this i thought maybe not. Marian Keyes is my favourate author so basically just going to stick to the books i think...
Dishwater is more interestingBy a customer , 26 Jul 2012Loved the book so had high hopes for the film. Too high it seems. Got bored part way through and started painting my nails
