fairly engaging
2 May 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OK, so the plot might be minimal in this one, but the cast are good enough to make you overlook that. The cast includes Stephen Rea as the harrassed ad man who dreams of being a cartoon superhero for his kids, Sinead Cusack as his wife, Claire Higgins as a neurotic friend, Philip Jackson as a businessman con artist, and Phil Daniels as an inept pair of twin builders.

I thought that Stephen Rea in particular was great in this; he usually gets all the intense parts to play and this was a bit more lightweight comedy. One or two bits of the film didn't ring true but in the main it is entertaining.
