Not a bad film, but certainly not a good one....
9 February 2005 | by (Wrexham, North Wales) – See all my reviews

Yet another "london based madcap comedy" littered with a few familiar British faces and a lot of unknowns.

Not a bad film, but certainly not a good one. It centres on 4 black DJ friends in their twenties, ducking and diving trying to think of ways to make money for their individual cash flow problems....

obviously this involves getting involved with drugs, porn and a vast array of really odd over the top characters along the way.

Very much like "SOUTH WEST NINE" and "IT WAS AN ACCIDENT....", and about as enjoyable, which is not very.
