Quotes

Second Cab Driver: So, when a woman says to you 'What a beautiful cock', she's lying. And who's she lying to? Herself. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe you do have a beautiful cock. I can't say. But I suspect it looks something like mine. And I know mine's no oil painting.

Set in London, seven young people try to sort out their relationship issues - or lack of them.

Fergus (David Morrissey) comes to London to try and find the girl Mo, (Jane Horrocks) that he jilted eight years before. He does find her and tries to win her back.

Eddie (Jimi Mistry) is a petty thief and all round loser. He meets a slightly strange but adorable self-employed grave decorator, Jocelyn (Catherine McCormack), steals her purse, tries to mug her at a strangely remote ATM, then tries to court her! They have one of the best scenes of the movie when she rescues his deranged dad and brings him home.

Then there is Frankie, (Craig Ferguson) trying to divorce his wife but still living in the same house. They are both seeking new partners which leads to problems about sharing space. Eleanor (Olivia Williams), his new girl, is so elegant, slightly remote but very nice too.

Jimmy (Adrian Lester) is a taxi driver who knows them all, and knows lots about them, and hands out advice. He links the various events together very effectively. All the characters go to a dance club doing salsa (whatever that is?) and this helps link the characters too.

The acting is great, there are some really good scenes and dialogue, but I've only rated it 9 because the scenes at the cab company are unnecessary and unpleasant.
