    Not bad. But not particularly good either. A decent enough chick-flick (hate the term), but bereft of oomph, lacking just a little something to make it stand out. It certainly doesn't deserve such a low metascore, mainly because it doesn't have the cojones to be really bad; content to just pootle along for 112 minutes in its Joanna Trollope meets Helen Fielding sort of vein, and Not bad.

Engaging performances from Andrew McDowell, Steve Staunton and Duckface are what really make it worth watching in any way. One to rent, then (but not from Blockbuster). Keep an eye on the lad McKay, mind: he does show promise, if only he can give his scripts a kick start now and then. Expand

    Not the best story but a very fine and competent cast! Plus points: The sparkling chemistry between the three women. A story about women pushing forty and more, which is rare enough in the filming business. Some really witty remarks and lines.

Some realistic streaks in the romance (who hasn't experienced up and downs during a relationship as well as some doubts if it's really the right man?) Despite the tragedy: Life goes on -if you like it or not - and one has to deal with it one way or another. And if nothing else: It's sometimes disturbing but also a lot of fun. I enjoyed it very much! Expand

    This movie is much better than the official critics are stating. It's about the friendship of three women at an age when our society generally starts to ignore them! Strong performences of all three ladies, but especially Anna Chancellor!

    A surprising and delightful romantic take on modern women.

    With heavy emphasis on cliché and stereotype, has at least four false endings -- and drags on for nearly two hours -- before it finally contrives to reunite its sitcomish pals for a last drink together.

    What’s striking about John McKay's feature debut is how much contempt toward his female characters the writer-director manages to pack into 115 minutes.
