Product description

Product Description

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?

I didn't like this film. It's badly scripted with some cringingly terrible lines, contrived characters, and awful jokes. Hugh Laurie is the best thing in it, but he can't do much with the material - but Joely Richardson is even more wooden than she is in those awful Lloyds TSB ads. I've not read the Ben Elton book it's based on, but I'm told by those who have that the film doesn't do it justice. I hope for Ben's sake that that's true. I think you might like this film if you liked 'Blame it on the Bellboy', otherwise I'd give it a miss.

I missed this film first time around as I was out of the country. Unfortunately, when it appeared in my local video store, I was not. Several of Britain's Most Celebrated Actors and Actresses make cameos here, most notably Rowan Atkinson, Dawn French, and Emma Thompson. This, along with the basic synopsis, contrives to become a publicist's dream. Which is just aswell, given the utter bobbins that lies behind it.
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.

So often, what is called a comedy, does not appeal to my sense of humour at all. This one does! It is a very funny film. Easy viewing, non of those fast American voices that you can't follow. A wonderful movie for a great night in!

I read the book first and I didn't enjoy the DVD as much as I thought I would. The book was funnier
