2 weird room-mates with one lover between them, means strange goings on
29 November 2002 | by (Oxford England) – See all my reviews

When a rich businessman finds out that his wife is having an affair with an artist (with a really nasty mullet, and some lovely underwear), he decides to leave his wife, and moves in with..... his wife's lover. We see some weird behaviour between the 2 as the businessman takes a deep interest his art, and eventually lands him a job. (After turning the artist into the reason why his wife left him in the first place.) Funny weird and wonderful. A very good film.
