I went to see this mostly because of the two lead actors, Aaron Eckhart and Helena Bonham Carter. This film follows two people who meet at a wedding reception, the sexual tension is palpable from the beginning. As the story unfolds it turns out that they have a shared past.

The most interesting aspect of this film was that the whole thing was shown in a split screen, like you had both sides of the story from the main characters. It also used the second screen to show flash backs to the past when they had known each other previosuly. It worked really well and gave the story an interesting perspective.

The actors were both excellent and you really believed them in their roles. The story was also very believable, I am sure many of us have felt similar desires when an ex has been involved.

It's not the kind of film I would suggest rushing to the cinema for, but I would definately recommend renting the DVD when it comes out. More of a chick-flick although there are enough topless shots to keep the boys entertained!

**** out of 5 for me.
