I don't know why this is in such limited release. Everyone should be lucky enough to see this movie! James McAvoy plays the lovable hero who we're rooting for, even when he's screwing up royally. I saw this with my husband and we both loved it. There's an awesome soundtrack featured in the film, which is set in 1980's Bristol, that mainly consists of The Cure. My husband and I have been listening to Pictures of You nonstop for days. I'm telling everyone to see this movie. It remineded me of a lot of the John Cusak movies from the 80's like The Sure Thing and Better Off Dead. This movie rocks!

Worth it if you are a James McAvoy fan! Loved the 80s music in the movie too. They captured the time period very well. Cheesy in some bits, but still cute.

Cute but disappointing and predictable. Also, the soundtrack wasn't as great as it was promised to be.

Just great British humor - acting and humor right on -- highly recommend to all romantic comedy fans....

Love James McAvoy in Shameless and he is brilliant in this lovely flick.
Love the addition of the History Boys lads. Great date movie. Looking forward to the cast in other endeavors.
