"Two Night Stand" (Guardian 13/02/15)

Two Night Stand **
Dir: Max Nichols. With: Miles Teller, Analeigh Tipton. 86 mins. Cert: 15

A medium-concept romcom, rushed out to capitalise on Miles Teller’s post-Whiplash visibility. Teller and Analeigh Tipton (from Damsels in Distress) at least bring mild freshness to this tale of a mismatched online hook-up extended by freak snowstorms; in some infernal variation, we’d be trapped overnight with Gerard Butler and Kate Hudson. Yet until the overcompensating finale, there’s scant internal tension – one minute they loathe one another, the next it’s all ping-pong and fairylights – and the pseudo-frank sex talk repeatedly hits the same one note. Very ordinary: a notch below “popping to Nando’s” on the list of Things to Do with a Significant Other this Valentine’s.

Two Night Stand opens in selected cinemas from today,
