Structurally, the film's off-kilter. The start of the relationship is rushed through, while the supposedly crucial notice period feels increasingly directionless. Which leaves the comic strand - and that, by and large, delivers.
Though there's nothing in the film to equal the excitement of seeing a marquee collapse from the weight of its title, an attractive cast and setting turn a tired one-joke premise into an adequate view.
Sense and Sensibility by the BBC is a good rendition of the new Film from US. I liked it's similarities, and without big stars, you really take more heed in the story than in costuming and acting. It becomes more of a story. The US version is very good also, but the BBC version is more explanatory.
