I wanted to love this film, because I love Frayn's play and I consider it a tightly woven comedy masterpiece. Unfortunately, this masterpiece was put into the hands of an American director, and a few mediocre American actors, and the final result is British comedy that's been Americanized and dumbed down for the audience.
