Losers form a Credit Union
13 April 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Why is life in England portrayed as wet, miserable and no hope is held for anyone? Perhaps that's why millions have emigrated from this place. My parents did!! This movie is about losers particularly Johnny the loan shark turned good guy and his girl Jo the archtype single mum. The film ends on a baffling note typical of the genre. However gripping, realistic and interesting!!
