Trivia

Although the film was made for just £160,000, producer-directors Gary Sinyor and Vadim Jean found it virtually impossible to raise the money for the production. It was only that the entire cast and crew worked for nothing on deferred payment salary that they were able to make the film. See more »

Goofs

At the clinic, Sidney's address is given as 228 The Drive, Edgware. However, when we see the house later, it is clearly number 7. See more »

Leon the Pig Farmer
5 May 2002 | by (Bolton, England) – See all my reviews

Very Simply this is my candidate for "Worst film ever made". It even makes Magnolia vaguely palatable. Stay clear if you see this on a video store shelf. There are many better ways to lose 90 minutes of your life than watch this.
