I Give It a Year


(2012) ★★★

Married to Rafe Spall following a whirlwind courtship, Rose Byrne gets the seven-month itch after meeting Simon Baker (the Mentalist thinks she’s single). Their sceptical friends aren’t surprised and counsellor Olivia Colman is even less help. More silly than malicious, this nice’n’sleazy comedy from Sacha Baron Cohen collaborator Dan Mazer delves into a twinkly Richard Curtis London peopled exclusively by nincompoops who’d give Alan Partridge a run in the mortification stakes. Cue Stephen Merchant, a past master of oblivious insensitivity and an awesomely offensive best man.
