Storyline

Northern Irish TV chef Harry has a history of playing around, being drunk and fighting with his wife. On the eve of his divorce hearing, Harry is beaten up at a garage but goes to work the next day. Acting increasingly disorientated and unusual he finally slips into a coma. Coming out of the coma later, Harry thinks he is 18 and can't remember anything past that. His wife doesn't tell him what a total s*** he has been and tries to form him into a better person. But when Harry discovers his recent past he is shaken and tries to carry on as normal.

Amusing, light entertainment
25 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

Black comedy about a hard-drinking/smoking/womanising Irish TV chef who loses his memory when on the brink of divorce. Harry is a mix of male TV chefs from Graham Kerr to Keith Floyd and looks a hell of a lot like Patrick, the Irish Anglia TV chef.

This is a well-constructed film, funny without being hilarious, moving without being too syrupy.

Brendan Gleeson play this part so well that it's hard to imagine anyone else doing it.

Amanda Donahoe is excellent in a different role for her.

George Wendt as a TV producer is George Wendt - a delight to watch (please can we see more of him).

Nothing groundbreaking, just good entertainment.
