Could have been so much more
on 19 August 2008
Hugh Jackman in one of his earliest film roles! Well, being an exceptionally big Jackman fan I had to get this and I really had high hopes for it based on the synopsis, so I feel extremely guilty by saying I didn't love it.
Hugh is great, he's gruff and funny, sexy and vulnerable, but the story itself lets it down. This could have been an extremely funny comedy, and it certainly had the potential, but it tried to take itself a little bit too seriously which sadly let the film down.
It isn't bad, and Hugh fans like myself will certainly buy it to add to the collection, but I fear you may not be as impressed as you would like to be
