FourPlay...no, not that kind!
Here I go again with a review of another cheap DVD. Sensibly I know that romantic comedies that are below about the £7 mark, are not well-known, and have a bunch of nobody actors in them aren't going to be Oscar-worthy. But, something inside of me compels me to buy them. This is what happened with "FourPlay" when I found it in Woolworth's for £2. It has Colin Firth in it (no he's not appearing in a wet, white shirt, and I'm not doing a paper on him this time;) which is it's only redeeming quality. The cover states that it's "In the tradition of 'Notting Hill' and 'Four Weddings,'" but really that's not entirely accurate. If they mean that it has more than one wedding in it (it does) and it's set in London and has an actress in it (it does) then yes, I can see the stretch. But alas "Four Play" was really only an hour and a half of boredom wrapped up in a Love Actually-esque box pretending to be something it's not. I give it 2 out of 10 bags of popcorn...it isn't even worth £2.
