Silly with no point.By Brenna747 from Hampshire , 21 Apr 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]This film was very disappointing. I thought with a couple of big names it would have been good, but I was wrong.
I actually feel embarrassed for the actors because the story is so bad. Two couples who can't decide who they want to be with. So?
When I saw Jack Dee was in it I almost didn't watch it. He didn't let me down though, he was his usual, foul-mouthed self.
There were some great shots of London which was about the only good thing about the film. It is very anti-American and that's just not funny anymore, if it ever was.
Save yourself, don't rent this one.

Terrible, terrible, terribleBy a customer from London , 16 Dec 2008Scripted in a waffly New Yorker style which may work for Woody Allen and Seinfeld, but not when set in this stereotyped vision of London.
I have not written a review before but feel so strongly that this film should be avoided, than I am moved to do so on this occasion.
RubbishBy a customer from Windsor , 11 Dec 2008Totally unrealistic, definitely not funny love story. Surpised that well known british actors actually supported it. It would have been better if it had been written by Jack Dee. It might have been entertaining then. Not at all recommended!
poorBy Jojo0327 (1 review) from BEDFORD , 15 Oct 2008Was surprised that Colin Firth would be in such a poor & boring film! THe only reason I kept watching was because I believed it had to get better!
Relationship mishapsBy Mal (98 reviews) from Gloucester , 26 Sep 2008This movie seemed a little slow at times and hilarious at other times. This is a movie to watch when you are in a mood to relax and enjoy when you want something to laugh about! I think the highlight of this is Fry's role as a therapist. He is very funny playing this part.
FourplayBy a customer from Lymington , 12 Jul 2008A promising film that incorporates the british spirit but sadly slightly misses the spot.
Colin Firth's character pleases whilst the american characters fail to impress in this mismatch of coupling.
Only London town manages to redeem the film...
