If you like sweet, slightly raunchy, and very clever comedies that talk about relationships in honest ways, put this film at the top of your list. Lake Bell (“In a World...”) brings top-notch comedic skills (and an impressive British accent) to the role of Nancy, a guarded thirty-something who wouldn’t mind love, but has trouble putting herself out there. Fate hands her a chance when she is mistaken by Jack (Simon Pegg, “Shaun of the Dead”) as his much-anticipated blind date. Feeling a connection, Nancy lets her guard down and decides to go all in, pretending she is the one. Things go swimmingly until she is outed by a chance encounter with an old acquaintance. The question is—will they “man up” and fight for their chance at love? This charming crowd-pleaser has all the right ingredients for a fresh imagining of the classic screwball comedy: mistaken identities, witty one-liners, sponta-neous choreography, and a madcap all-in-one-night adventure.
