Right, well I enjoyed it. In fact, I’ll even go as far as saying that at points, I laughed hard and shed a tear at others. This may be a sign that I’m going soft, but I like to think it’s more because it was a good film.

Well written, excellent cameo by “fired staffers” and yes, the world’s most amusing moustache, this movie moved along at quite a pace and was very enjoyable. I potentially saw bits where I realised, I wanted to be Ryan, to have his frequent flyer status and to really know the system. And maybe it’s a bit forelorn, but the “love story” wasn’t overcooked and I felt that the lead character was thus a bit more “real”.

Sure, it’s not the greatest review in the world, but definitely one of the best films I’ve seen in the last 6 months. Has ‘Oscar’ written all over it.
