We gave it a B+

In This Charming Man, Marian Keyes’ new doorstopper, smart, good-hearted women are drawn to a dashing Irish politician who’s also an abusive cad.

Movie Pitch
Sleeping With the Enemy with more humor and victims.

Bottom Line
Keyes’ protagonists shine, even at their darkest. It’s just a shame her bad guy is so unbelievably bad, and that his inevitable comeuppance is a letdown. B+
