ReelViews for movies starring 'Henry Golding'
Although the humor is variable, the romance is consistent and that allows the film to go down smoothly even if it takes an inordinately long time to do so.
The overpolished screenplay and overuse of directorial flourishes hamper the viewer’s enjoyment of what should have been a pretty straightforward caper-style crime film.
If it doesn’t find its niche in theaters, it will certainly surface again in the home video market and become a favorite for Christmases to come.
The movie becomes so obsessed with narrative switchbacks that it comes close to straying into self-parody territory.
