Centred around a close knit, larger-than-life British Asian family living in present day Bolton, ALL IN GOOD TIME stars REECE RITCHIE (The Lovely Bones) and AMARA KARAN (The Darjeeling Limited) as Atul Dutt and his young bride Vina, for whom the first taste of married life is proving far from straightforward.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[It] has a late-entry note of poignancy that cuts through the predictable in this Bollywood bedroom farce. But it's not enough to nudge it out of the column marked "mediocre.""
‑ Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
"It's all very contrived and sometimes clumsy, but what rescues the tale is the element of pathos lurking beneath the film's broad comedy."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"None of this quite adds up to great filmmaking, but its populist appeal is undeniable. You'd need a hard heart not to empathise with the young couple's plight."
‑ David Gritten, Daily Telegraph
"The set-up remains a universal one for all young lovers regardless of race and this a throughoughly-likeable, warm-hearted film with good performances."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Post
"No sooner seen than forgotten."
‑ Sophie Monks Kaufman, Little White Lies
"In short, All in Good Time is a failed performance about a performance failure."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"All in Good Time is a touching, likable comedy of life in Lancashire's Hindu community."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"The frequently drowsy script never rises to the occasion."
‑ , Sun Online
"While Ritchie and Karan offer up charming performances, their characters could use more depth: the romantic complications feel sudden without much psychological insight."
‑ Anna Smith, Guardian
"Its stagey mix of East Is East-style father/ son conflict and bouncy bedroom farce is endearing, though a tad stereotyped."
‑ Kate Stables, Total Film
"Compromised by a contrived storyline, a confounding key subplot involving a character we never meet and an overly convenient resolution."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Not quite the feel-good farce you might expect, this is an uneven but sober work about the pragmatic nature of relationships."
‑ Shaun Munro, What Culture
"A wise and witty film about sex - well, actually the lack of it - that's honest and often laugh-out-loud funny."
‑ Mark Adams, Daily Mirror [UK]
"The cast, largely straight from the stage, project their dialogue as if no one has told them to stop playing to the gallery and start playing to the multiplex."
‑ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
"The performances are strong, especially from Patel and Syal, and there are plenty of laughs."
‑ Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express
