A very funny and very watchable comedy, as two brothers in London pursue their divergent approaches to romance. After seeing the film only once, and that ten years ago, somewhat surreal scenes are still remembered today: the guy on his way to a fancy dress party, dressed as a rabbit, crestfallen as his angry girlfriend attacks his car; the younger brother dating the French girl dressed as a pack of cards, who performs a number from 'South Pacific'; the older brother trying to explain to the police why he is out on the streets in his underwear. So many films make quite dull set pieces out of such material, but here it's deftly played and carried off to very good effect, and the whole is a notably witty and human comedy.
