So Good That I Went Straight Out & Bought A Copy!By Russell Kingdon from Croydon, England , 22 Aug 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]This is an excellent, thought-provoking, beautifully acted film. I cannot recommend it enough to people. Bill Nighy is superb and Kelly MacDonald is both beautiful and subtle in her performance. I enjoyed this so much that I went out bought a copy for keeps. Richard Curtis has written a timely tale that makes you think about your own personal priorities in life and the difference that you as an individual can make to other people's lives.

Truly terribleBy Orlovsky (1 review) , 02 Jun 2013Sorry to say this is one of the lamest films I've watched in a while - the dialogue is dreadful, and the characters totally unbelievable, don't waste your time, it is utter rubbish.
Clap TrapBy a customer , 24 Mar 2013A load of idealistic clap trap. Why do we need to write a minimum of 20 words when 6 will do?
A gentle romanceBy Bobsview (559 reviews) from Gloucestershire , 24 Apr 2012OK not the best film ever and not Richard Curtis' best film either but definitely watch able. The two lead roles are superb ,Bill Nighy and Kelly MacDonald, and it is a low key gentle pleasant innocuous meander of a story. Two lonely souls sort of drift together for a while and a little connection and love is briefly found before their lives diverge again. It is sensitively handled and I liked it.
Clumsy misfiringBy a customer , 20 Nov 2011Interested to see that HBO were associated with this production as I've been impressed with their previous work, particularly because it has been intelligent and hit the delicate line between crassness and 'meaningfulness'. This film doesn't and it often lurches clumsily between what should be touching scenes and preaching as if it doesn't trust the viewer to understand. Bill Nighy is a unique and sometimes endearing actor but he needs to be reigned in at times. This film does raise questions but not those I suspect Richard Curtis intended.
Whirlwind romance? Hardly!By a customer , 05 Jun 2011Whirlwind romance? Hardly. No romance at all. Both leads are fantastic - so for that alone it is worth watching - but the story needs stronger direction. I was disappointed with what was a promising premise and while the ending offers hope to the starving, we all know what really happened. ..
