The movie revolves around the life of a 34-year-old woman named Nancy, who intends to join a blind date with a man named Jack. She mistakenly takes the identity of another woman, Jessica, who was supposed to meet Jack at the same time and place. Unbeknownst to Nancy, Jack doesn't know what Jessica looks like. Thus, they go on a comical yet romantic journey full of interesting and awkward twists that keep the viewers interested throughout.

The film's plot starts in London, as the protagonist, Nancy, struggles with her loveless and monotonous life. Her sister is happily married, and her parents' marriage is challenged. Nancy's best friend, Elaine, tries to convince her to take a chance on love, and Nancy eventually agrees.

The chemistry between the two characters, even in mistaken circumstances, is highly entertaining and relatable. Due to the misunderstanding, the couple decides to walk around London, sharing their thoughts and past experiences over a couple of drinks. It is during this escapade that the duo realizes how similar they are, as they both have a passion for crossword puzzles.

As the night progresses, the truth of Nancy's identity comes out eventually, and both the characters have to decide how to proceed from there. The storyline is captivating and keeps the audience guessing throughout the film's runtime. There is a perfect blend of humor and romance that will undoubtedly leave the viewers feeling satisfied.

Actress Lake Bell plays the role of Nancy effortlessly. Her character is relatable and endearing, making the audience root for her throughout the movie. Rory Kinnear's performance as Jack is charming and captivating. The duo's chemistry is the heartbeat of the movie, and they undoubtedly steal the show.

The rest of the supporting cast does an excellent job of enhancing the movie's humor and comic timing. Ken Stott, who plays the role of Nancy's father, is outstanding. His portrayal of a man going through a mid-life crisis is hilarious yet relatable. Harriet Walter, who plays Jack's mother, is another character who leaves a lasting impression on the audience's mind.
