Reg Varney is brilliant
7 January 2002 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Reg Varney gives a genuinely affecting performance in this comedy drama. Seeing him, i expected it to be a cheesy 70's sex comedy but it wasn't at all. The film gives women some credit, and is not about nudity. Without the overuse of unsubtle "emotive"music it would have been better, perhaps like a Mike Leigh movie. Still, some parts were rather melodramatic and visually it was boring. Reg Varney deserved more credit for this effort.
