    One Chance is as heartwarming as it is negligent. Paul Potts' tale is wonderfully told, as it challenges common stereotypes and discriminatoryOne Chance is as heartwarming as it is negligent. Paul Potts' tale is wonderfully told, as it challenges common stereotypes and discriminatory issues that exist today; all whilst the other characters appear to be developing in the background somewhere. Is this beginning to sound like a crowd pleaser? Well it is, and it's worth sitting through, as long as you keep your attention centered on Paul Potts. Full Review »

    Paul Potts' rise from Joe ordinary to become the winner of the talent show Britain's got talent is a well documented true fairy tale successPaul Potts' rise from Joe ordinary to become the winner of the talent show Britain's got talent is a well documented true fairy tale success story that makes for a pleasantly entertaining little film with a big heart. Respected comedian James Cordon, lip syncing wonderfully (I trust that's what he's doing?), is endearing as Potts, but for my money the film is all but stolen by Alexandra Roach playing his wife. She provides the film with its core emotion and really is terrific. The film's screenplay is by turns funny and sad and you really would have to have a heart of stone no to be moved by it. Wonderful use is made of real locations in Venice and Wales with the Venetian city looking as beautiful as always. So,disengage brain. Leave your critical faculties at the door and just let this well crafted Cinderella story wash over you. Full Review »
