Great film, great performances from Imelda, Ricky and especially Johnny. He's hilarious. For Ricky Tomlinson this is a welcome return to form after Once Upon a time in the Midlands. He's back in his home town, his home environment and it really comes across in his performance. He doesn't need to worry about his accent so he can just get on with performing. For Johnny this is also a lot better than Sex Lives of The Potato Men, in this movie he is more himself, I think he identifies with the character and he does look like he's enjoying it. Some of the shots of Liverpool are awesome, and there's some great air to air scenes towards the end and a dramatic rescue from the Mersey. A must see for any fans of British comedy, highly recommended.
