DUSTIN Hoffman and Emma Thompson prove it's never too late for romance in comedy LAST CHANCE HARVEY (12A).

New Yorker Harvey Shine is on the verge of losing his dead-end job as a jingle writer.

Warned by his boss that he has just one more chance to deliver, Harvey goes to London for a weekend to attend his daughter's wedding but promises to be back on Monday morning to make an important meeting - or else.

But when he arrives in England, he discovers his daughter has chosen to have her stepfather walk her down the aisle.
