Storyline

Eight haunted people meet and fall apart - looking for redemption in each other. Jim is throwing watermelons off his office roof. He's testing the effect for a possible suicide. But then there is Sue on an adjacent roof about to jump herself. They meet, delay their departure and set off searching for other ways out than down. Sue's ex-boyfriend, Dean, is struggling with his creativity. His paintings are getting panned and his poetry ripped apart. He needs a muse - and who better than Gina, the experimental prostitute with dodgy legs who lives next door. However, Dean soon finds out that Gina never does anything for free. After a short fling with Dean, Olly is lost in a world of sexual confusion when forced to look after his deaf-mute brother Chris for the day. Olly discovers that not only does Chris has gay feelings too, but is more comfortable with them than he is. They embark on a searing quest through Soho's gay community to help Chris loose his virginity. But no-one has more to ... Written by Anonymous

My bottom set year 9 drama class could have handled the subject with more sensitivity
21 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I must admit I did not expect too much from this film, not being much of a Danny Dyer fan. Even so, it was surprisingly dreadful and instantly forgettable. What self indulgent twaddle, containing easily the most offensive portrayal of someone with autism I have ever seen - my bottom set year 9 drama class could have handled the subject with far greater sensitivity. Quite how any of the actors were conned into associating themselves with making it is beyond me. Unless you are researching for your dissertation on the worst British films of all time, there is absolutely NO justification whatsoever in choosing to watch this. Don't let anyone persuade you otherwise.
