A contempo contribution to the august British tradition of lame, unfunny sex comedies.

Brian Orndorf

An occasionally loathsome sitcom starring two miscast leads doing their chipper best to make this malarkey profound.

If you make it to the so-called happy ending, think aloud if Swinging with the Finkels would have lived up to its name better if the titular couple ended their relationship on the business side of a noose.

We Got This Covered

The film features one-dimensional, married characters who lack distinctive personalities, and fails to include a backstory that proves they ever had any chemistry together.

Unfunny to the point of utter boredom. Martin freeman is funny at times but the film in general seems terribly forced. The whole tone of the film is quite odd… More
