Honeymooner (15)

Starring: Chris Coghill, Gerard Kearns

The best I can say of Col Spector's relationships comedy is that I preferred it to his 2007 debut Someone Else. Gerard Kearns plays the sweet, rabbity-faced lead, jilted just before his wedding and now moping through single life in Camden with his two pals (Chris Coghill, Al Weaver).

Spector aspires to the tone of US indie comedies, but his aim is way off: the staging is awkward, the pacing sluggish, the background detailing virtually nonexistent. The script has one good line about "soup du jour". It could do with more.
