But that wasn't because either scene was unrealistic or not true to life - rather the reverse, they brought my own skeletons jangling to the front of the wardrobe. All those times when you fervently hope you'll look back and laugh, while suspecting you will never attain quite that degree of distance from the debacle.
Also, I kept wanting to punch James for being such an unbelievably un-understanding, stuck-up, pain of a man. Which, again, resonating with my own unbelievably un-understanding, stuck up, etc, etc.
Evelyn would really have got on with my first m-in-l - who, to the bitter end, called me 'the cheap date'. Mm.
It's a rare and to-be-treasured thing to feel quite so completely sisters under the skin with a fictional character that you wish she was real enough for you to check if her email address was genuine.
And the ending is just right. Picture perfect, with a little twist...
