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>

Brilliant
23 January 2002 | by (Edinburgh) – See all my reviews

I can honestly say i cried myself to sleep the first time i watched this,it was one of the funniest things i had ever seen.The scene with the sea song is absolutely hilarious,and cringingly embarrassing,you really feel for Ray as he is pressed into joining in.

The acting is superb.Especially Roger Sloman and Alison Steadman.

What makes it so good is that we all know characters like Keith and Candice-Marie in everyday life. But real people like them would not watch this film they don't find this funny at all,they just do not understand it.

I have watched it with people who think it's awful, it went completely over their heads, people rather like Chris it seems.
