Not too sure
11 February 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Mixed about this one. Again, some ex-Eastenders stars, some good characters & acting, one or two funny scenes and the basis of a good & simple story although bizarre.

The problem was it was too long even at 88 minutes. It would've worked better as a one hour TV show as much of the final 3rd became 'time filler'. Sadly too, there's really not a place for Colin's in this world. I couldn't work out why this was an '18' certificate, 15, or even 12 would've suited it more.

As average a film as you'll ever see. Not good. Not bad.
