First, the bad news: the 'English' accents on Rose Byrne and Simon Baker leave a lot to be desired. Now, the good news: the movie appears to be really quite funny, thanks in large part to the presence of comedian Stephen Merchant, (creator of The Office who is sometimes unfavourably referred to as the side-kick of Ricky Gervais). Written and directed by Dan Mazer, whose previous credits include Borat, The Dictator, The Ali G Show - basically everything Sacha Baron Cohen has ever done, the humour is borderline NSFW. But hey, it's Christmas so we figure everyone, (including your boss?) a little less uptight at this time of year. Yeah? Cheers then.
I Give it a Year opens in Australia on February 14, 2013.
