Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine,
The story of a group of British teens who are trying to grow up and find love and happiness despite questionable parenting and teachers who more want to be friends (and lovers) rather than authority figures.
Ralph Outen (Eddie Izzard) is a hot-shot advertising executive with a taste for the flash and stimulating, and who is not very happy to be turning 40. He is intrigued when he is deliberately not invited to his old school reunion, which prompts him to drop by several of the old friends he had left behind, all of whom are experiencing changes of their own. Three-part drama series (164 mins), first shown on Channel 4 in 2003. Written by
Reading the comments written so far I must have missed something as I found "40" to be one of the worst channel four programmes I've ever seen. The story was incomprehensible and totally unbelievable. As for some of the acting and dialogue, I couldn't believe what I was hearing, it was pitiful. It made "Neighbours" seem like Shakespeare! I know we're a bit spoilt with brilliant shows like "The Sopranos", "Six Feet Under" and "The West Wing" but this was not up to broadcasting standards and should have been left well on the shelf.
