Storyline

Danny has found the girl of his dreams, but he's too insecure to make a move. When he lands a job at a local movie theater where she works, he finds out that his first day is her last. After failing miserably at getting her attention, he enlists the help of the chief projectionist, who has watched one too many movies, and no longer sees the difference between film fiction and real life. It's cinema, but not as you know it. Written by Jim Brit, Anonymous

Good fun
5 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a sexy, funny film easily equal in quality to any teen romantic comedy released by Hollywood over the last few years.

The girls are glamorous and beautiful, the guys (aside from the 'socially inept male main character') are well dressed and confident. It bucks the trend of recent British comedies, replacing the squalor of, say, Shaun Of The Dead, with a deliberately slick, glossy, carefree world that has the characters thinking nothing of snacking on some leftover popcorn or attending an after-work pool party.

The writing is genuinely clever in places, and the production values are high. Visual humour abounds, but nothing is overdone and cringe worthy. The comic-book narration is a particularly fine example of the device.

I recommend this film to anyone wanting to have a disposable, fun time. Definitely a film for couples. Humorously dirty, it should appeal to anyone between 15 and 30.

In one of life's ironies, as I was watching it in the cinema, a large family with several very young children walked in to the auditorium during the film's 'kissing lessons' scene, mere minutes after the main character is warned to double check the screen number on punters' tickets. Real life, you cannot make this stuff up.
