Cherry on the Cake

Romance Comedy


 

A lonely woman with a crushing fear of commitment attends a New Year's Eve party that puts her in an uncomfortable predicament.

"The Cherry on the Cake" is a French rom-com that reminds us what hard work the dating game is. The plot is built upon a trivial but amusing premise that gets overworked until it becomes tiresome. Girl and guy meet, but girl tires of guy until guy becomes unavailable, and then girl is interested again. If it sounds irritating in premise,then it's a even more annoying when realised on screen; if only the film was played out with more humour. No cherry picking.
