Quotes

The Jumper: It's his fault! We had everything. A lovely home, a dog, then she turned up at his work and he started staying later and later. Said he had meetings to attended and important people to see. I was a fool. How much work could a Lolly-pop man need meetings for? He went of with her. I must have read the dear Susan letter about a thousand times, I don't know message just wouldn't sink in. I got really depressed. Doctors pill were rubbish. I lost me mind, me house, me dog ran away! And all me friends...

Talk about a dark comedy!
7 March 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a very dark and adult comedy from the UK. It begins with a lady standing atop a building. As a man approaches, she threatens to jump. Unexpectedly, the man seems totally unperturbed and encourages her to kill herself if she'd like, because he was busy and couldn't be bothered. Instead of jumping, she is quite stunned and just stands there--even after he leaves. However, he comes back a moment later--not to talk her down but to buy her car. After all, since she's dying, she won't need it!! There's a lot more to it than this, but by reading this you can tell it's a rather dark comedy--with a funny but sick twist at the end that may put off some viewers. Still, it was highly original and gave me a few good laughs. I can't wait to see more from the folks that made this film.
