Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Something about this second-rate Truly Madly Deeply leaves a nasty taste in the mouth. Based on Cecelia Ahern's novel, it stars Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler as Holly and Gerry - lovers who marry after a whirlwind romance. But their happiness is short-lived. Gerry dies of a terminal illness - but not before writing, for posthumous delivery, umpteen letters of guidance. These direct Holly, not just towards closure in their relationship, but also towards a new love. Such advice from beyond the grave is creepy enough. But Gerry's assumption that Holly's every mood and move can be predicted with complete accuracy is somewhat arrogant. It also means that, despite being adapted from a book written by a woman, this ropey if slickly made romantic comedy has an unpleasant chauvinistic overtone.
