Time Out

This Scottish romcom is a great advert for Glasgow, but it delivers an awful warning to filmmakers about shooting a script that's seriously unready.

Shadows on the Wall

The cast gives it what they can, but they are underserved by choppy direction and a simplistic script that never breaks the surface.

Mike McCahill

That convention-flouting title misleads: this winsome affair lags lamentably close to the modern romcom average.

Guy Lodge

A trifling comedy about writer's block that aims for a blend of Richard Curtis-style cheeriness and arch literary satire, and winds up mostly drawing a blank.

Daily Telegraph (UK)

The film's ending was indeed a happy moment, but not in the intended manner.

Rich Cline

This may look like a rom-com, with its obvious plotting and over-cute characters, but it's eerily lacking any actual romance or comedy.

Tracy Moore
Common Sense Media

Brit romcom about writer's block has brief nudity, cliches.

Daily Express (UK)

Contrived, manic and unfunny the film also flounders because of the lack of chemistry between an awkward Gillan and a wooden Weber.

Matthew Turner

Ultimately worth seeing thanks to a charming lead performance from Karen Gillan, strong comic support from Iain De Caestecker and a handful of decent gags.
