The critical consensus

Hard to pull anything clear out of the messy memories.

Sophie Monks Kaufman, Little White Lies, 28/11/2013

As the pair bicker and get into scrapes, humour and melodrama rub along uncomfortably, but the likeable leads and gorgeous scenery make this lightweight trip fly by.

The sparky performances from the two leads go some way to atoning for a mawkish screenplay.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 28/11/2013

This feels like a Ken Loach film that's had its politics dialled back by producers keen to retain the centre ground.

Although occasionally the multiple plot strands seem to be pulling against each other, there's a warmth to the production that eases us over the structural cracks and makes us care about the outcome.

***(*)(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 01/12/2013

A modest charmer that is likeable and mildly diverting in places.
