| Diminishing returns
From the start it's obvious where this story is going to end up and we must be grateful that it only takes 97 minutes to get there. The script, mostly a series of break-ups and makings-up, might have worked for a TV sitcom but it's not enough to sustain a movie. The direction - like the writing - is uninspired.

There's a terrible lack of chemistry between each pair of leads, whichever way you mix them. The men are more persuasive than the women, and Minnie Driver outshines the two female stars. Olivia Colman has a nice role as a counsellor in need of counselling herself. Stephen Merchant gives us his usual tiresome nerd so persuasively that you want to see him pushed under a bus.

The law of diminishing returns seems to be applying to British rom-coms. PIRATE RADIO (The Boat that Rocked) wasn't as funny as LOVE ACTUALLY which wasn't as romantic as NOTTING HILL which wasn't as funny as FOUR WEDDINGS. I GIVE IT A YEAR is conspicuously lacking in believable romance and a few chuckles do not constitute much of a comedy.

I'd give it a miss.
