Ronan Keating’s tattooed torso plays a supporting role in this winsome comedy, a saccharine-sweet affair whose modest charms come so thickly coated in treacle it should probably carry a health warning. Case in point? The ‘sink song’ webcam vids Keating’s bored wife (Laura Michelle Kelly) posts online while he’s off somewhere researching whales: postings that soon go viral and inspire a Sydney marketing whizz ( Kath & Kim ’s Madga Szubanski) to seek out her services.

Fantasy musical numbers, marital worries and toilet humour make an odd brew in an Australian production that seems intent on ticking every box imaginable. Sadly, this Goddess falls a long way short of divine.
