Welsh, Witty and very watchable!
13 June 2003 | by (Oldham) – See all my reviews

My brother got me on to this film, I'm just getting over a bad Viral infection so i'm spending a bit of time at home. He bought me a load of DVD's to borrow and some where in the middle was this one. It's about the closer of an independent Bingo hall and a community trying to save it from the evil grip of corporate Bingo (stay with it, it looks better than it sounds).

it's the sort of film you'll see on a sunday afternoon and it'll make you feel good about the world.

just give it watch, you'll love it.
