5.0 out of 5 stars
a delightful romantic comedy
Verified purchase
complete with the starstruck couple, the man slow on the uptake and the determined villain.
its not designed to be earthshaking, however it does show how living by your true values can be its own reward.
its funny, its romantic and it shows the value of teaching.
highly recommended as it does what it says on the tin.

A FINE Romantic Comedy

First of all I absolutely L<3VED this film. The acting was superb, the writing too and the direction. But it was also so delightfully feelgood.

On top of all that, the plot of an actor spending time as a substitute teacher only to realise that teaching was more fun than acting was surprisingly believable. I suspect it happens more than we think.
