A little known gem of haunting British comedy
12 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is very black comedy which leaves an indelible impression on the viewer. It is so powerful because of its impeccable attention to detail in the way it satirises contemporary advertising and the chasm between the glossy fantasy worlds they paint and the sad painful world inhabited by ordinary people. The casting of Bryers as the Pollyanna-ish protagonist is spot on, as his usual chirpy persona is given a new sinister twist by the catastrophic outcomes of his well meant intentions - like Tom Good accidentally launching bird flu on the unsuspecting citizens of Surbiton. Edmondson plays a similar character to Angus Deayton in 'One Foot in the Grave': permanently exasperated with Bryers but ultimately sympathetic that he is just a victim of an unfair world against which he has no defences.
