Ben Elton writes and directs this romantic comedy adaptation of his own novel. Sam Bell (Hugh Laurie) and wife Lucy (Joely Richardson) seem to have it all - good looks, nice jobs, the perfect marriage - but despite their best efforts they haven't yet managed to produce the one thing they want above all else: a baby. When BBC commissioning editor Sam comes under pressure from his new boss, he begins writing a screenplay based on his and Lucy's experiences with IVF, using extracts from his wife's diary with neither her knowledge or approval. Meanwhile, theatrical agent Lucy has become enamoured of her latest client, good-looking actor Carl Phipps (James Purefoy). Can Lucy and Sam's marriage survive the strains they are placing it under?

Joely Richardson and Hugh Laurie 'star' as a married couple who, guess what, appear to have the perfect life. Great home, media-friendly jobs, and a nice little line in CuteTalk TM. Oh, and a dog. But - and feel free to stop me if you've heard this one before - something's missing. Yes, the patter of tiny feet. Cue lots of 'hilarious' japes, including several jokes that sound as though they have come straight from a gynaecologist's Christmas party, plenty of 'comical' high-speed chases through scenic London (this being Film Version London, where everyone drinks Skinny Lattes and takes walks through leafy parks wearing Laura Ashley), and incase you missed it the first time around (1989, anyone?) an almost word-for-word replay of Mr Elton's sperm sketch. Laugh? Can anyone recommend a good stain remover? etc etc
As if this depressing dirge was not bad enough, Hugh Laurie and Joely Richardson deliver their lines with about as much passion as the contents of your average Ikea. There is no chemistry between them and the seemingly down-to-earth Joely is unconvincing as a woman undergoing the range of emotions one would expect from such a difficult situation.Read more ›
