Conclusion: 3/5
A very funny film. I have to say that I did laugh quite a few times unexpectedly. I did find that the start of the film was very realistic and could totally relate to it. I felt like I believed in all the characters and what they were all going through. Both David Tennant and Rosamund Pike were terrific. There were times where it lost its plot slightly but then came back on itself. I also felt that towards the end it didn’t quite know how to finish.
