above average british sex comedy
13 June 1999 | by (london, england) – See all my reviews

British sex comedy that doesn't have diana dors in it! ( shock) man needs to keep job for a week (hence the title) so that his girlfriend will agree to marry him. Plenty of beautiful females, a likeable performance from jeremy bulloch and a debut from the lovely jill damas who steals every scene that she is in (particulary in that short skirt). worthwhile if you have nothing else to do.
