Almost Married review

 

There's no 'almost': this horrendously misjudged, far-from romantic comedy fails totally. When hubby-to-be Kyle (Philip McGinley) gets an STD on his stag do, he has to resist the advances of fiancée Lydia (Emily Atack) until he gets the all-clear.

The resulting farce relies on siding with a cheat’s outlandish attempts to hide his indiscretion.

Director Ben Cookson adopts a tone of blithe jollity at odds with the film’s bitter gender politics and the sniggering laddishness makes for an unpleasant date movie even before a predictable twist reveals the misogynistic core.
