  1. After 45 minutes of incomparable boredom, the movie gets slightly better when it stops reaching for cheap yuks and lets the actors do what they do well.

    Man returns to the Midlands from Glasgow to get back with his ex-wife after seeing her new man propose & fail to her on a TV show.
    Usual Shane
    Meadows affair with a good cast, funny dialogue, moving & Mike Leigh-light grit.
    For me, Rhys Ifans is just outstanding & after seeing him as Peter Cook recently & now this, think he's a very talented actor.
    Well worth a watch if you've enjoyed Meadows's other work.
