A slightly sleepy but otherwise endearing film
2 December 1999 | by (Manchester, England) – See all my reviews

I think the reason why there are no comments for this film other than this , is probably because no-one has actually seen it. I think it may have only been on TV once, in perhaps 1992 - and since then it has drifted into the dusty recesses of the BBC archives.

Is this a shame? Well, while there are certainly better films to be watched than this- this does have some charms of its own. Chesney Hawkes, the two-hit wonder of the early nineties is OK in his only feature role to date, and Roger Daltrey is predictably cast to type.

My recollections of this film are that it is a pleasant enough way to spend two hours, although I suspect if I were to see it again I may judge it as a contrived and suspect piece of trite. Who knows?

Trust my memory. If it's on, and you're bored - give it a shot. Nothing to lose except two hours of your life, right?
