I Love You Too: DVD Review
I Love You Too
Released by Roadshow Home Entertainment
Rove sidekick Peter Helliar heads to the big screen with this rom com about
Brendan Cowell's Jim who after three and a half years is unable to tell his
girlfriend Alice (Chuck's Yvonne Strahovski) that he loves her.
You see Jim's a manchild - he lives in a granny flat at the back of his
sister's place and works as a driver at a miniature railway. He's not exactly
But when Alice decides enough's enough and that it's time to head back to the
UK, Jim's dumped - and it's at that point he realizes he has to do
And here's where his path crosses with Peter Dinklage's Charlie who tries to
help him get her back.
I Love You Too is a fairly amiable buddy movie - it's not wildly original in
terms of story (in fact the manchild act's been mined a fair bit this year) but
it's actually quite touching and funny in places.
A lot of that is down to Peter Helliar's larrikin ways and deadpan humour -
as writer and coproducer he's given his character Blake some of the best lines
and moments in the film.
Mind you the whole ensemble work well together and while the plot's not
original, this is the kind of film you can put on and find some unexpected
Extras: commentaries with all the teams - both directing and
acting talent, deleted scenes and a behind the scenes doco. Not a bad bunch
