Fans of Grey’s Anatomy’s Patrick ‘McDreamy’ Dempsey will have palpitations over his role here as an NY casanova who attempts to woo best pal Michelle Monaghan out of marrying a Celtic lord (Kevin McKidd) and moving abroad. Yep, the TV doc snogs like a god, impresses with plate juggling (Dempsey’s real-life secret skill) and wears a pressed shirt with style. When he’s not whipping it off, that is. Sadly, non-McDreamy devotees may be tested by a flaccid script that reads like a male version of the superior My Best Friend’s Wedding, or by a Hollywoodised vision of Scotland more twee and fantastical than Brigadoon (Shame on you, Brit-director Paul Weiland.) Still, if you’re peckish for some easy, cheesy junk-food cinema this McRomcom should just about satisfy.
