A gentle, funny and delightfully eccentric British comedy
30 August 2002 | by AnnabeljamesSee all my reviews

This is a gentle, 'feel good' comedy about three friends who decide to take a holiday together in Norfolk, and end up appearing in a local talent contest because one of them has a long-standing crush on the organizer.

Its reminiscent of both 'The Darling Buds of May' and 'Four Weddings and a funeral', although played more for laughs and there is negligible swearing involved.

The three women (Sara Crowe, Annette Badland and Nadia Sawalha) are good in their roles, and believable as friends. The bickering between them is especially convincing, particularly as obstacles to their goal present themselves.

In supporting roles, the ever reliable Leslie Phillips does an excellent job as a piano teacher over fond of his sherry, and Tim McMullen and Guy Henry add a delightfully light touch as the two handsome and eccentric brothers with hearts of gold

Overall, this is an enjoyable comedy which deserved better reviews (and a wider audience) than it received at the time of release. If the outcome is predictable, its none the worse for it and you reach the end of the film with the feeling that you have spent an enchanting and happy 90 minutes in the company of some good friends.
