Year: 2001


In no particular city, four friends congregate at a nondescript cafe. Vincent (James Lance), a shelf-filler in a supermarket and a serial philanderer, Lenny (Enzo Cilenti), a nerd with a necktie, who suffers from porno delusions, and Sean (Luke de Woolfson), a night worker in a hospital who carries round a bar of soap. Lone femme in the group is Jody (Kate Ashfield), a laddette with a sharp tongue who works on a computer production line. And then the film suddenly throws in a couple of wrenches: the Alfie-esque Vincent picks up a sad-looking young foreign woman (Heike Makatsch). The understated fresh comedy finally clicks into place in the third act, as the whole group sets off to track down Madeline in a small seaside town. Derek Elley
