| A sentimental, 'feelgood' farce with heaps of potential which is seldom realised.
This is a curiously lame re-versioning of a French film, which was much more successful on many levels, the most important being the direction. WTTS is an awkward experience for this audience member; it's full of good farcical ideas and nice, broad characters, but it never really comes to life, because the staging, the timing and the acting all miss the mark. You can see how good it could have been, how many of the scenes, played differently would have worked. Alas it's mostly flat, overly sentimental but cheerful. The only actor in the cast with whom I'm familiar is Angela Finocchiaro, whom I very much admired in "Don't Tell" - in which she gave a funny and moving performance. Here she's not given much to do beyond acting out the demands of of her caricatured character and the unlikely turns of the plot. I kept expecting her to be funny, but I was always disappointed. I attribute this to poor writing and even poorer direction. It's often extraordinary how certain scenes are staged - as though the director is anti-comedy.
