Dull retread of multi-casted romances about a bunch of British singletons who mix and match over a period of one year. This month’s boyfriend is dating next month’s girlfriend, and within the group of eight or so principals, everyone gets a chance at everyone else. The kick-off is a marriage that ends after eight hours when Catherine McCormack‘s husband discovers her infidelity during their wedding reception. Kathy Burke, Dougray Scott, Jennifer Ehle and Ian Hart are among the many other amorous adventurers who traverse London in search of the perfect mate. It’s charming, it’s funny, but it’s all been done before and knows it.
