I thought it was great, lotsa swearing but that only adds to the fun for me! Lee Evans is my idol, I wanna see him live one day, he was brill in this film. An definite eye opener 10/10. Thanks Nini for your submission.

This is a very moving little film, funny in a sad way, about an idle no-hoper who lives on dreams. Evans and Burke are a perfect match and Linda Bassett is brilliant as the saw-tongued mother in law. The wordless little scene where Evans' character, Robert Martin, looks around the perfect little cottage by the bay, with its charming interior telling a tale of middle-class industry, carefulness, organisation and good taste...all the things Robert doesn't have...always sticks in my mind. Thanks Sarah for your submission.
