Plot Outline:

Luke and Kate are a pair of brewery workers who spend every day drinking and flirting - they would be perfect for each other if each wasn't already in a committed relationship. Luke is about to propose to his girlfriend of six years while Kate takes things slow with her music producer boyfriend. But things tend to get complicated when a lot of beer is involved. -- Chris Kavan

A familiar relation.

It's very easy to like a film that's so cheerful and laid back as this film gets at times.

While I have to say this does take a realistic approach to relationships, that also means is relies a lot on the connection between the actors. Wilde and Johnson have that good, flirty chemistry going on. When they're out with friends or just two people p...
