Storyline

A washed-up 80's pop star suddenly has a new direction in life when he discovers that he has a teenage daughter, Olivia, in Cardiff, Wales. The result of a weekend affair he had back at the height of his fame produced Olivia, a newspaper delivery girl for the South Wales Echo. He arrives in the small Welsh town, unsettling the life of his ex-lover while inspiring his newfound daughter to follow in his footsteps with a musical career of her own, against the wishes of her mother.

Quotes

Paul Kerr: [after Digger kicks a ball wide of the goal] Maybe it's time you take up knitting.
Digger: Yeah, well maybe it's time you started the amends process, mate.
Paul Kerr: Hey, I got her pregnant and left her to raise the kid on her own. How do you make amends for that, eh?
Digger: I don't know. A nice bunch of flowers. Box of chocolates.
Paul Kerr: [sarcasticly] Flowers and a box of chocolates, why didn't I think of that? Problem solved!

incredible.
18 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

It was by pure coincidence that I saw this movie. When I heard that the movie flopped, I was very surprised. I considered it to be funny, entertaining and with great music. One of the best movies I saw in 2003, only to be beat by Amelie.
