    Pretty good, very clever and witty, but I felt I'd seen this a lot before and that they were TRYING, really HARD. What happened between this and One two Three (diamond left?)

    Kiss Me Stupid - [​IMG]
    I will revisit this, but only in the presence of an audience, because this very quickly degenerated into «wince» characters-act-stupid-to-move-the-plot-along comedy. The whole hide Dino from the wife thing just annoyed the hell out of me while trying to watch this alone so I just gave up and stopped paying attention.
