  • Overall incredibly disappointed

    I was very excited to see this as I am a big fan of David Tennant, but sadly this film left me with a sinking feeling by the time it was over. The good: I am amazed they were able to make this film with a budget of under $160,000. That is incredible and I give the filmmakers huge kudos for that. There were also several good to great performances. Faye Marsay was wonderful, as were David Tennant and Sarah Parrish. And I even laughed once or twice. The bad: The writing was not good. It doesn't matter how top notch the talent is, the writing dragged them down. There were moments that were just so ridiculous (and not in a good way) that my suspension of disbelief was compromised and I just kept repeating: this is awful, who thought this was a good idea, etc. Another big problem I had was that there was very little chemistry between the two main characters (supposedly lesbians in a loving relationship). We don't see much evidence of this at all (it was more being told something vs being shown something). The women hardly touched, hardly kissed, and most of the time didn't seem like they even liked each other. For a romantic comedy, there was not a lot of romance. Instead we start the film at two truly horrible decisions being made that should make any sane person turn tail and run from such dysfunction. Most of the film has the two people not even talking let alone trying to fix their relationship. By the end of the film there is a voiceover sort of giving a recap and it's not clear whether the two are even together. I don't consider it a successful romcom if you can't see whether two people are together, but need to wait until you are told whether they are or aren't. Again, I blame the writing and directing choices. I debated whether or not to include a spoiler, and I won't. BUT there is an event that happens in the film that made me so angry to have watched it, because I thought I was going to be watching an edgy though fun and light hearted romcom. It was traumatic and heartbreaking and not implied in any official chatter around the film. I almost stopped watching right then and there. This film is being sold as a rom-com, but people should know going into it that it is in no way fun or light hearted.

  • A movie with wit, charm and honesty

    I loved it! Absolutely fabulous! I mean I finished the film thrilled (and dabbing my eyes) because it was way better than my expectations. I think it's one of the best romantic comedies that I've seen in a long time. It's so funny yet so sad, just like life! It's so good to watch something that feels raw and honest and yet still makes you giggle. There was so much vulnerability to the script. This is where cinema should go. I'm so glad that it was made in the UK because the US would have drowned out so much of the sincerity. The film was so, so good. I connected with every character and fell in love with them all. I was there and felt the pain, happiness, and love. It's fantastic to see a lesbian relationship not treated with sugar-coated, kid gloves, but like a real, living and breathing human relationship - and all the crap that comes with that. Olivia and Alex have terrific chemistry which is undeniable. David Tennant needs to do more comedy. I laughed, I cried... it moved me! Ten stars!

  • You, Me, and Him - Review

    emmaziff2018-06-06

    SPOILER: Beware of distressing stillbirth scene. I went to see this film with my partner. Everywhere we read that it is a comedy about a couple having a family. No where on the internet did it say anything about stillbirth. We were horrified when this scene came up as six months earlier, due to medical negligence, our baby died during labour. We ran out of the cinema distraught as the words and scene were identical to us. This absolutely should have been mentioned in the promo. It's an important subject but was very raw for us!

  • A comedy that will make you both laugh and cry

    lameconi2018-01-01

    I was able to watch the movie, at last! And I can say it is a really good comedy, You must watch it as it is really worthy. David always amazes me for his versatility, he can play both drama and comedy effertlessy and he reminds me Cary Grant for this peculiarity. ...he made the role of John his own, I was worried to be distracted by the beard, piercing and hypster's look, but I wasn't a bit. It was all part of the character, just in appearance frivolous.He was brilliant! Nina Sosanya and Sarah Parish always a delight to watch, Sarah was a surprise as I know her in serious roles. The team ladies have good chemistry and, especially Lucy Punch was good and also Simon Bird as her brother. Appropriate music and lovely cameos by the Tennant's clan. One scene *LIGHT SPOILER* made me remind a sad period of my life. I rarely saw it (if never) on movies in all its rawness. I sobbed, but it was, finally cathartic. A word for Daisy Aitkens. I get this is her first movie as director, apart a couple of shorts. The girl has talent, she already seems a veteran, good shots, perfect edit, as they talk about equality, this is a case of a female director that should be given more opportunities. Bravo! There was just a few (luckily) moans on socials by some claiming to be LGBT that went so far to bully/harassing people on tumblr/other socials just because those people loved You,Me&Him and shared stills/gifs. An idiot stays an idiot, male, female, LGBT or whatsoever, still an idiot if the main purpose is to bully unknown people on socials. Not going to waste further time on it. .Better to be clear: This movie is a comedy, not a documentary, it doesn't mean to teach a lesson, and albeit what are the main characters, this is a movie about maternity. And a decent movie, too. People need to keep polemics for more serious things. And this movie made made melaugh, but also cry. 4star from my humble person

  • Funny, charming and witty new Brit rom com

    bluerinse-947082018-01-09

    No spoilers here. This is just the best fun ever. Well done Showtime for snapping it up. Written and helmed by Daisy Aitkens it does what it's supposed to; makes 'em laugh, makes 'em cry. But mainly laugh. With a rumoured budget of only $3million God knows how they managed it. I guess if you get the script right the good actors will follow and the young Brit pack guys seem to have piled in here. David Tenant, Lucy Punch and Fay Marsay headline an excellent cast aided and abetted by the usual gang of oh so polished and subtle UK character actors that we expect in these Downton days. It is about two women, a couple couple, who despite being total opposites, go together as comfortably as yin and yang symbols. One is the business woman with her sharp suits and mind, the other an anguished artist with seemingly permanent artists block. Their warmth, vulnerability and loving humor gives the movie its whole feelgood thing. Then they get pregnant at the same time. And there is the third side to the triangle in the form of David Tenant who goes into a hilarious new high gear as the neighbour from one of the outer suburbs of hell. But no more. Go see, have a great laugh and take a tissue.... For the tears thank you people!
