Yes this is both a romance flick and a sports flick. Having said that, I should add that this film has an excellent script, a fantastic cast and it bursts with great characters.
So it’s more than a love story. It’s more than a ‘come-back’ story. It’s a really good light comedy about a man about to give up on his dream, and the difficulties of being an elite sportsperson for family, relationships and friendships.
It is also unashamedly upbeat.
Paul Bettany is just fantastic in this role.
