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

Keith: Look at this view, Brownsea Island, Round Island, the Lakeland of Dorset... pity about the power station in the background, never mind... there are the heaths, Newton Heath, Rempstone Heath, Witch Heath... disused railway line going up to Wareham... and the great nimbocumulus rising above it all like great puffs of cotton wool.
Candice Marie: Look at all this rubbish Keith.
Keith: What?
Candice Marie: Isn't it awful, look at all those ...

Brilliant
6 February 2004 | by (Manchester,England.) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest things i've ever seen in my life and what's more it doesn't need to resort to crudity to be effective, something that's unheard of nowadays, not that i'm on a moral crusade but the world potrayed in this film looks rather quaint in the cut and thrust of the 21st century. I'll knock your head off !
