Plot: When Stuart learns that his British ex girlfriend is planning to visit Los Angeles with her husband, he sets out to impress them with his glamorous lifestyle, enlisting a Russian model he has just met to play the role of his beautiful girlfriend. What could go wrong?

Review: There is nothing spectacular about this film but the one thing it does have is a right royal mix of awkward situations and comedy 🙂

The plot is very simple. Stuart (Stephen Merchant) is a geeky, awkward British guy who – after the love of his life, Trudy (Henrietta Miere), broke up with him and married a douche by the name of Mike (Adam Campbell) – moves to L.A., hangs out with an equally awkward wingman named Wade (Nate Torrence), and rents out his bungalow to a former actress Jessica (Christine Woods).

From there, the film goes from bland to right out funny. Stuart learns that his former sweetheart, Trudy, is coming to L.A. to visit him (with douchebag Mike in tow), and in order to make an impression, Stuart hires Russian model Tatiana (Stephanie Cornielieussen), who then happens to break the date at last minute…..

I think you can see where it goes from here. Stuart is in a dilly of a pickle, so he asks Jessica to step in and help him out… Of course, playing the girlfriend does not go down easily, as you will see if you watch this film.

While I did find it similar to the TV series “You’re The Worst“, this film was delightful to watch, and goes to show that even geeky tall guys can land Russian models 🙂

Hello Ladies has it’s dull moments, but equally moving funny moments, and watch for the hilarious cameo by Nicole Kidman (apparently she flew in for a couple of hours and was completely happy to jump onboard with the scene and go at it completely ad-lib)

Brilliant!

Verdict: Nice guys finish first!
My Rating: 7 out of 10
