I can't see me loving this movie

Dir. Ol Parker

Starring Piper Perabo, Lena Headey, Matthew Goode, Darren Boyde etc.

If you love the archetypical british comedies that Working Title have brought you, you shouldn’t be sitting there reading this. You should go to the video store and buy this movie. Then you should take it outside, throw it on the sidewalk, pour gasoline on it and light it on fire. You’d be doing the world, and the reputation of british cinema a big favor.

How something can use “all the right things” and go so wrong is beyond me. I mean it has two hot lesbians in it, how bad can it be? The answer is “pretty damn bad”.

Imagine Me & You uses the nice super-real cinematography we’ve seen before, the same loveable minor characters (Anthony Head as the permanently tortured and subdued dad is the only good thing in it), and the cheesy ending that’s meant to pull you in. Why doesn’t it work? I’m pretty sure it’s because Working Title isn’t behind this, but instead it’s a litter of copycats. It’s no Love Actually in any way, mostly because the clichés are so blatant and annoying, and – in spite of it’s lesbian twist – not twisted in the least.

So yeah, It’s poo and I stepped in it, but I’m giving you a heads up. If you decide to see it anyway, at least don’t wipe it off on your friends.
