This rotely cheeky, Anglo-plastic adultery comedy is set in the golden-green English countryside, and it makes a few quirky nods toward artistry, but it’s really just a glib concoction. Tamara Drewe (Gemma Arterton), a luscious lass, returns to the village where she grew up and gets involved with a roster of male stooges. There’s the airport-fiction novelist (Roger Allam) who’s a smug hack, the half-crazy rock drummer (Dominic Cooper), and so on. If the film were as worldly as it pretends to be, it wouldn’t shove its characters into sitcom slots. C
