An aspiring screenwriter and a trainee doctor become “sex friends” as she doesn't want to enter a long-term relationship, but he falls desperately in love with her. Amiable romantic comedy whose game cast and good sense of humour goes a long way towards making up for some perfunctory, predictable plotting.
