The Accidental Husband (12A)
Friday 29 February 2008
Even taking into account the dismal pedigree of director Griffin Dunne (Practical Magic, Addicted to Love) and writer Bonnie Sikowitz, one could hardly have predicted this shocker.
Uma Thurman plays a New York agony-aunt DJ who flouts her own advice and falls for the hunky fireman Jeffrey Dean Morgan, despite being already engaged to the clean-cut Brit Colin Firth.
A plot of insufferable silliness contrives to keep the lovers on tenterhooks and the audience in a permanent cringe, none of it helped by Thurman's thoroughly phony performance – Firth looks comparatively sincere. Just one laugh would have been something, but Sikowitz could not oblige us even that.
Watch the trailer for 'The Accidental Husband'.
