Kate Beckinsdale looks uncomfortable
on 13 May 2016
I bought this film to view the acting qualities of Kate Beckinsdale but was left slightly disappointed. Not that she puts in a bad shift, but I'm not too sure she put her heart and soul into the project as she does in most of the other projects she has taken on. It left me feeling a little uncomfortable as I couldn't clearly categorise the genre of film it was trying to portray. There are moments of flippant comedy and the odd dash of deeply significant poignancy here, but overall it didn't convince me it was strong enough to be classed either a drama, life-adventure or comedy. Whilst I take my hat off to Kate Beckinsdale who, not for the first time, showed she is prepared to take on a more demanding role and not settle for just another run-of-the-mill Rom Com however, she doesn't quite pull this off. There are several star performances here though, but sadly Kate was not one of therm. Still, it can be purchased at a very reasonable price, so if nothing more than (another Beckinsdale movie), I suppose it is pretty good value for money. If you're not a fan though, in my opinion it is not worth a viewing.
