Great film, very British, very funny..., 5 February 2006
Author: morningstarsonja-1 from United Kingdom

...but I would say that, because I am in it! ;-)

Imagine "The Office", but with the David Brent character as the most hapless but likable filmmaker imaginable: He assembles a motley crew of people to star in and produce his first feature film, an adult film called "Assanova"- so he can raise funds for his first "real" feature. He takes time out from pushing trolleys at the local supermarket, finds his leading lady working at the library and deals with his dodgy financiers, Tourette-suffering brother and overexcited mum. "Thom Cruz", a dustman becomes the leading man- he never takes showers or his snakeskin boots off! Snakeskin isn't the only problem "Jack Innov" encounters whilst shooting his masterpiece, he also has to solve problems regarding his permanently naked DOP, the slight substance-abuse issue of his production assistant, of who has given who the "clap", and bodily injury to his stars. Things he doesn't worry about too much is the seriously dodgy dialogue, ironing, pubic grooming and the nosy questions by Linda Boreman, the documentary-maker who follows his progress. You gotta see it to believe it! "Speed!" -"Where!?"
