Watch: How NOT to buy lingerie, from I Give it a Year
Attention ladies! If the approach of Valentine's Day means you'll be receiving some sexy underwear soon, it might be worth familiarising yourself with the effort (from men) that goes into the lingerie buying process. We're hoping not all blokes come out with such toe-curling one liners as 'That's a formidable gusset' and 'A portion of your finest panties m'lord'. But Rafe Spall is pretty on the money when he delivers the true-to-life gem: 'Christ, is that really the price? I could buy an 18 litre dehumidifier for that' in this cringe-tastic clip from soon-to-release I Give it a Year...
I Give It A Year is the new comedy from the producers of Love Actually and Bridget Jones’s Diary, and the writer of Borat. Sounds good already, right? Starting where other rom-coms finish, this flick lifts the veil on the realities of the first year of marriage, and stars Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids), Rafe Spall (One Day), Anna Faris (The Dictator) and Simon Baker (The Mentalist).
The story goes... Since they met at a party, ambitious high-flyer Nat (Byrne) and struggling novelist Josh (Spall) have been deliriously happy despite their differences. Josh is a thinker; Nat’s a doer, but the spark between them is undeniable. Their wedding is a dream come true but family, friends and even the minister who marries them aren’t convinced that they can last. And Josh’s ex-girlfriend, Chloe (Faris), and Nat’s handsome American client, Guy (Baker), could offer attractive alternatives.
With their first anniversary approaching, neither wants to be the first to give up, but will they make it?
I Give it a Year is released in cinemas on 8th February 2013.
