Greg is overheard admitting that his girlfriend Steph is no beauty, but that he wouldn't change her for the world. She is devastated; he can't quite see what he’s done wrong.

Slight and superficial, with phony American accents, lots of swearing, and based on the rather obvious fact that people put too much on looks.

All over the place but lands well. Shaky start with the standard Labute men-and-women-shouting at each other, and the American accents take a while to gel. But by the end all four actors are firing on all cylinders. Almost every scene is just two people sitting in a room talking, and that they produce laughter and tears from this is more a testament to the skilful acting than to the script.
