Tepid B movie with few virtues
10 October 2000 | by (Basingstoke, England) – See all my reviews

The plot of this movie is summed up very literally by it's title. It's the story of several middle aged but rather naive members of a darts team from a London pub who go on a trip to Bologne and each of whom experience their own little "day to remember". It's all rather poorly executed and several of the performances are really quite dire. There are precious few twists and turns in the plot, and it's all rather predictable - it's only saving grace is an excellent performance by the rather beautiful Odile Versois (who plays Martine) and her smashing little Peugeot. But not one I'd watch again through choice.
