TOP 500 REVIEWERon 2 August 2016
First off, the DVD itself is fine if basic (no subtitles, only a trailer by way of extras), the one star rating if solely for the film. Which is dire.

It's not the fault of the actors, especially Colin Firth and Mariel Hemingway are very capable actors, whom it is usually a joy to watch, even if they play less agreeable characters. The truth is, this film is cringeworthy. The biggest problem is that it is utterly unfunny. Not a good thing if you're trying to sell something as a comedy. There isn't one single likable character in the entire film! The story could be interesting if the script were halfway decent, but it isn't, and the endless talk about sex becomes very irritating very quickly.

The tagline "In the tradition of 'Notting Hill' & 'Four Weddings and a Funeral'" makes for high expectations, so the disappointment will likely be even bigger. This film is nothing like either of those two hit films. It's a story about a circle of friends and their intertwining relationships, and it's set in London. That's where the similarities end.

If you're an ardent fan of any of the actors, buy it and watch it by all means, but recommend it I cannot.

Gambled and bought it as a wedding anniversary occasion. I'm pleased I did. Colin Firth, Jack Dee and others were enough to enable the ethics of wife swapping to be ignored.

The movie plot isn't the best, but Colin Firth sure does a good performance! The dvd was in a very good quality when it arrived at my place too :) Thanks for the purchase!

Terrible, terrible, terrible! I am such a lover of Colin Firth and wanted to watch all of his films, but this was just awful! Terrible storyline, terrible (other) actors and just a dreadful 2 hours all round! The american bloke (can't remember who he was) was just a pain in the backside from start to finish.

Don't get it. I have put it in the Charity box already.
