A truly enjoyable British film that follows our hero Bob through a very difficult weekend in his life. Just about every man's worst fears come to fruition for Bob, who then decides to deal with the fallout by going on the run in what could only be described as a Northern Walkabout. He is helped along the way by Angela, who becomes his companion and guardian angel. Their journey is funny, sad, happy, but mostly surreal. There are some fantastic performances including a powerful (extended)cameo by Brian Glover in one of his last film appearances. Corrie fans will get a huge kick out of seeing Bruce Jones (Les Battersby on the Street)as Bob, whose performance does nothing less than suck you into his world. The flow of the film is very exacting, pacey, and takes your emotions on ride as if you were on the pier in Blackpool. It is hard for me to believe that this was Jevon O'Neill's first feature film as a director. O'Neill's style is surely his own, but I was reminded of Capra throughout, and the way he tactfully injects misery,humour,and imagery makes the film very enjoyable. I have watched it a few times now, and I even have some favourite lines (always a good metric of a movie in my book).
