What’s the Best Advice you’ve ever received? Well, here is one bit of advice…See this British Comedy about life and getting married. This movie is one of the sharpest and outrageously refreshing films that I have seen in years.

The British romantic comedy sparkles with sharp great one-liners. So fabulous, that I will want to see it again, and again. Believe me – the audience was bent over with laughter. The place turned into a “very lively affair!” You can’t stop laughing.

The writer/director Dan Mazer has come up with A Masterpiece — what a Divine and rapturous movie. The Cast is Superb. The title of the movie is “I Give It A Year” — well, tell me how much time do you think this marriage will last? Not much.

I’ll tell you this: Seeing this movie is genuine magic. It’s touching and mesmerizing. It’ll put you on a mission to restore your reputation. And…a laugh every two minutes…everyone gives us effortless charm.

Here is the bouncy and spirited cast: Rose Byrne, Rafe Spall, Alex Macqueen, Stephen Merchant, Jane Asher, Terence Harvey, Minnie Driver, Jason Flemyng, Nigel Planer and Anna Faris, Simon Baker. The rollicking team is loaded with exuberant charm. It’s an infectious crowd-pleaser. No doubt about it…this is one of the Best films of the year and beyond. “Seductive, Charismatic and mesmerizing!”


The Time has changed at the Opera Plaza. The Grand opening will be Friday Sept. 6th. for “I Give it a Year.”

RATING: Four Glasses of Champagne!!!! – highest rating- trademarked-
