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.

Nothing new, but darned fun getting there.
7 June 2001 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

This is a typical everyone's looking for love type of story. It's predictable, has a happy ending, and lots of great British accents (very important for us anglophiles).

There are three points that would make me own this film: 1. Adrian Lester was BRILLIANT. He's a philosopher cabbie that shuttles the main characters through the movie. He's deep, he's human, and he's got his own issues. I loved him. 2. Jane Horrocks was good in an unusually straight forward role. No faces, no voices, just Jane. 3. There is a scene with Tabasco sauce that had me almost on the floor. Worth the price of admission.

It's not a "great film" and won't bear up under analysis. But it's a heck of a lot of fun.
