Storyline

He wakes up in her bed. He's Josh, an Australian photographer living in London, on holiday in Sydney, leaving in three days. She's Cinthia (Cin), a dress designer. They've met at a party and shared a cab back to their respective places, they're attracted to each other, he'll be gone in three days (no complications), so he stays the night. Each of them talks to the camera occasionally, commenting on what happens; so do her female friends and his male ones. An omniscient taxi driver also helps out. How will those three days go? What could be better than sex? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A delightful Australian comedy!
17 November 2000 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie, it was very funny, sexy and the two leads (David Wenham and Susie Porter) were fantastic. I never for one second lost interest in this movie, there's always something going on, usually something funny. The supporting cast were good, especially Kris McQuade the taxi driver. The direction and script were really good, the music is very enjoyable, especially the music for the bath scene. Overall I think this is a great movie, and should be seen by all. 10/10 from me.
