CGiii Comment

Seriously [and we mean seriously] dull and totally depressing.

It's only 70 minutes [too] long...and, next-to-nothing happens in the first 10 minutes...the remaining 60: next-to-nothing happens!

Here's a [stalker-ish] charmless man who has been dumped...can't accept it...leaves a multitude of telephone messages...and, travels to the Arctic Circle to reclaim his 'love' - well, if he's f83ked off to the Arctic Circle...he - really [and we mean really] wants NOTHING more to do with you!

However, the straw that mutilated this camel's back came with the line: I feel like my heart is an hotel...an hotel that you can leave without saying goodbye...

Oooh somewhat reminiscent of a certain Hotel California - well, we checked out at this point and nothing/no-one could stop us from leaving!

But...wait...we went back and actually saw this through to the end [whatever possessed us!]...the final 10 minutes were even worse than the first.

You cannot possibly expect an audience to pay for a film...when the production values [and talent] are lower than a collapsed tent!

AND...billed as a comedy/drama?!? That's the funniest thing about it!
