Northern Irish playwright Lisa McGee fashioned her piece
The film immediately recalls one of Garry Marshall's rip-offs of "Love Actually,"
As moviegoers continue to nurse our collective hangover from '90s Miramax-sponsored Tarantino wannabes, it's understandable that Walsh and Brookes opted for a tonic update. They've deftly juggled the time-jumping that is the central conceit of McGee's play. When it becomes apparent that the seemingly linear narrative is in fact woven with several parallel story lines, one might even be inclined to excuse the plot's too many convenient coincidences.
