Swinging With The Finkels review

Well, at least it's not too much longer till The Hobbit...

Brits and sex comedies have never been easy bedfellows (Sex Lives Of The Potato Men, anyone?), and this laugh-free effort is no exception.

Sexually stale couple Martin Freeman and Mandy Moore attempt to spice things up with a bit of swinging; wacky hijinks follow, underscored by plinky-plonky sitcom music to remind viewers they’re supposed to be chuckling.

Thank God for Freeman, a reliably wry, likeable and emotionally truthful totem around which the rest of proceedings messily revolve.

But he’s saddled with a script that descends from misjudged raunch-com into mawkish sap come act three.
