Boosh fans will love it but it is clever, funny and creative enough to grab even the casual viewer
30 April 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of Pete Sweet's friends comes from a family of all boys and eventually his mother decided to imagine a daughter, Polly. When Pete and Polly meet they hit it off immediately even though she is not his usual type and the fact that Pete's mate Stitch wanted her as well. Regardless though, the sex is amazing and the relationship is great. However with time she begins to grate on him with her nagging and he starts having a thing on the side with another woman.

It was after watching seasons one and two of The Mighty Boosh that I came across this film and of course the use of both Boosh actors made me interested to see even if the film is very much the creation of writer/director Pilkington. However watching this after season two, one cannot help but see the parallels with the Milky Joe where imaginary figures (made out of coconuts) become the focus of an intense love triangle involving Vince and Howard – it was one of my favourite episodes because it took the audience from the outside to the inside of their imagination. With Sweet though the action is very much in the "real" world and the imagination is brought to meet us on our terms. A simple relationship drama is played out with an imaginary woman in a way that is fresh and funny.

It does build to a funny conclusion but really all of it is amusing at the least. Pilkington's approach gives the material energy and his direction draws out the best from his main actor, Fielding. OK, one could say that Noel is doing what he always does but his delivery works here as it does in Boosh and he convinces us that this is real with his wide-eyed and "sweet" performance – accepting anything that comes along as wicked! Barratt has a smaller role but is still amusing and Boosh fans will like them together.

Overall then an imaginative little short film that is clever, funny and creative. The tone of delivery is consistent across all aspects and makes it all hang together when the smallest crack would have seen the silliness all falling down. Casual viewers should check it out and it goes without saying that Boosh fans will mostly love it.
