The blueprint for a genuinely inspired, warm-hearted dramedy is indeed there, it's just that the filmmakers can't figure out how to properly utilise what they have.

There are many corny moments ... But on the whole, one can't deny Poms has a life-affirming quality and an emotionally charged finish that'll have you leaving the theatre on a high.

It's fine to make a film that's just supposed to make an audience smile (hello, "Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again") but this film doesn't even get close to that level of joy.
