Born Romantic ★★ 2000 (R)

Six lonely Londoners converge at a salsa club hoping to find a little romance. There's screwy Jocelyn (McCormack), no-nonsense Mo (Horrocks), uptight Eleanor (Williams), would-be Lothario Frank (Fer-guson), awkward Eddie (Mistry), and lovelorn Fergus (Morrissey). Cabbie Jimmy (Lester) offers advice. Enjoyable (if predictable) romantic comedy. 97m/C VHS, DVD . GB Craig Ferguson, Adrian Lester, Catherine McCormack, Jimi Mistry, David Morrissey, Olivia Williams, Jane Horrocks, Hermione Norris, Ian Hart, Kenneth Cranham, Paddy Considine; D: David Kane; W: David Kane; C: Robert Alazraki; M: Simon Boswell.
