Storyline

Good-looking, well-spoken Phil is broke and cannot understand how flatmate James has recently acquired a lot of extra cash and a permanent grin on his face. James's secret? Adonis Escorts - 40 pounds an hour, 150 for the night. Faced with imminent eviction, a reluctant Phil is persuaded to join the agency and soon the two gigolos have a loyal following including bored housewife, Frances. In fact business is booming until love rears its ugly head. And then chaos reigns as James falls in love with Phil, Phil falls in love with Helen, Helen takes Phil home to her mother - Frances, Frances goes crazy because she had fallen for her daughter's new boyfriend Phil, and Darren just wants to make it alright - by settling down with James. Who is definitely not gay. Just confused! Written by Anonymous

Fantastic Farcical Black Comedy
28 August 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Synopsis:

A male escort unknowingly starts dating the daughter of one of his 'clients.' Mayhem ensues. A twisted modern love story, where the inner complexity of the relationships is reflected by the London sprawl. In the midst of all of this, is the truly original allegory of flyfishing to relationships: waiting for the right 'catch' to come along.

Appraisal:

The film is very funny. It employs dramatic irony to great effect. The acting is great, as is the script. There are cameo's from Helen Baxendale, the writers, family of the crew and members of the crew themselves. The strengths of the film lie in it's comedy moments, however there is also a strong love story acting as a backbone to support the comedic touches. In summary: this film is well worth watching.
