Must be one of the best films EVER made (in my opinion)
12 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

Before watching this film I was very doubtful as to its content. I thought it was going to be just like any other 'low budget' film. BUT I WAS WRONG. After watching it several times, I have come to believe that it is one of the best television films ever made.

Neil Morrissey's portrayal of Charlie/Charlotte, and Martin Clunes' portrayal of Simon mix together with the rest of the characters to make the most wonderful and funny films I have ever seen.

My rating of this film has to be 10/10, and I would recommend it to anyone. They do not have to be a fan of any of the actors, or of New romantic music to enjoy such a thing.
