If ever a title killed a film's chances, this was it. You see it, think "bad rom-com" and then pick something else at the multiplex. Big shame.

Because you only have to look at the names of the two leads (Steve Carell and Tina Fey) to realise there's more to this mistaken-identity thriller-comedy than meets the eye.

Fey and Carell are a suburban couple on the run, and they will do anything – including pole-dance – to get back to the boring life they were desperate to escape.
