Year: 2013
Genre: Comedy, Drama and Sci-Fi
Conclusion: 3/5
Good but not the best Richard Curtis film. It has been said that this will be his last film that he will direct but we shall wait and see. He was struggling a bit in the film especially in the middle. It was a bit too long. I am not sure whether he got the casting right for this. Rachel McAdams seemed too old to be Domhnall Gleeson’s girlfriend. They didn’t really have any chemistry at all. Nothing really to work on and the part wasn’t really right for her. I also just looked at Rachel McAdams and all I could think about was The Time Traveller’s Wife film. I can imagine Martin Freeman playing the part of Tim. You had the feeling in this where the young sister was never really that close to her parents but at the same time she never really wanted to grow up. It was always about the father and son relationship. I have a problem with Bill Nighy and that is that I just can’t take him seriously enough. The house where they filmed it was amazing. It made me just want to go and live there. The music in this was excellent and I thought that they had got it just right. It wasn’t too much. The script was very well written. As much as I enjoyed it it is not one that I would sit through again.
