Storyline

Their Morris packed to the gills, the punctilious Keith and the more spontaneous Candice-Marie arrive at a Dorset campground where they pay £10 in advance for ten nights. It's peaceful: they visit Corfe Castle, eat vegetarian food, and go in search of raw milk. Then a fellow with a loud radio pitches his tent near theirs: Keith is beside himself and it doesn't help when Candice-Marie decides to befriend the young man. Things get worse when a couple arrive on a motorcycle, make noisy love in their tent, and then start an illegal campfire. It's too much for Keith: he loses it. Will our middle-class couple find a bucolic corner, or are they doomed to brawl with the noisy and unwashed? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Candice Marie: Keith?
Keith: Mmm.
Candice Marie: You know you always tell me to chew everything 72 times?
Keith: Mmm.
Candice Marie: Well I don't think that can be right, because, um for instance you're chewing nuts now, and they have to be chewed 72 times because they're very hard. But earlier on I was eating mushroom, and I only got to 31 and it slipped down my throat quite naturally. So it doesn't always have to be 72 times does it?
Keith: [long pause while chewing] I think the important thing is to uh, use your discretion.

a pure gem
9 November 2004 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

My 11yr old daughter and her 12yr old friend chose this movie for a sleepover in what can only be described as a flash of brilliance. As I cooked in the kitchen I kept being drawn in by their laughter, giggling and quizzical expressions. Being a long time Mike Leigh fan, I eventually just squeezed into the couch beside them and proceeded to watch one of the funniest movies I have ever, EVER seen. I like hearing that it has become a tradition for people, and I think I will try that this year over the Christmas holidays.

My daughter and her friend now make a point of staring the other down and growling, "Now Candice-Marie..."
