Screened as part of the BBC2 compilation of shorts entitled `Ways to leave your lover' this was the opener and set a very light hearted tone to it. The situation exaggerates out of control as more and more people arrive to hear the good news. This must be building to a big punch line, I thought to myself. Sadly at the end the film goes a little serious as if trying to make a serious point among all this exaggeration. It didn't work for it at this point I'd rather than seen the build up pay off.
The cast do OK with Tennant in the lead and a few familiar TV faces in there as well from the UK. This is enjoyable enough because it is comic and knowingly exaggerated however it just really needed a strong finish which it lacks. Worth a watch but leaves you feeling a bit short changed.
