He's homeless as Kate's husband has moved in with his wife. This leaves the problem of how to get promptly pregnant. Surely not with increasingly interesting Dave.

This is a story about the relationship between an unlikely couple thrown together when their respective partners embark on an affair. Kerry Fox plays the part of a struggling romantic novelist who has to take in Ray Winstone, who plays a flash, but down on his luck car salesman, as a lodger, to make ends meet when her husband deserts her. The film has some brilliant moments of comedy, and a great supporting cast. Ben Daniels shines in his part as a gay actor who tries to be a matchmaker for Fox. This was much more fun than Notting Hill and had the extra bonus of some good earthy sex scenes!
