Oddball movie that has a certain appeal to those who like the wacky and surreal
2 May 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't know much about James Abadi, but by all accounts, this movie is his first film. It purports to be a British film, and if the cast is anything to go by, then this much at least is true, as between them they have a CV which encompasses pretty much every TV drama or soap opera that has been on BBC or ITV since the 1990's. What is quite obvious from the moment the stars step into a car for a drive, is that they have foreign numberplates and that they are not filming anywhere near the UK. They are in fact somewhere in Hungary in Eastern Europe, the reason for that being the presence of the main bankroller of the film, noted LGBT transgender activist Desiré Dubounet (a.k.a. William Nelson, a prolific US inventor indicted for fraud in 1996 who claims to have invented an electronic machine that can diagnose cancer and AIDS) who lives in exile in Budapest. As s/he put up most of the money for this film, I suppose it's only fair that s/he gets a say in where the movie is filmed, plus a producers credit and a first major starring role. Like most TG's who turn to "acting", s/he is not especially good at it - just a guy in drag. Actress Tamsin Egerton ("St. Trinian's") sticks out like a sore thumb in a pile of otherwise mediocre 'talent' - the poor girl is really so much better than this.

The plot involves a record producer (Finlay Robertson) and his secretary (Egerton) who create a fictitious band called 'F**K' who are really a bunch of talentless no-hopers so he can humiliate his rival producer (Lee Boardman) by getting him to sign them as 'the next big thing' without ever actually hearing them play. It gets quite surreal at various points, featuring both nuns with guns and aliens, with Peter Bowles turning up at various points to play the Devil/Death and cheat at a game of backgammon (not that the Prince of Darkness would play fair anyway!). And yes, that was Russ Abbot's one-time sidekick Bella Emberg you might have spotted in a blink-and-you'll-almost-miss-her cameo role. Maybe she needed the rent money that week.

Despite the general oddness, the cast seem to be having fun, and the film did manage to invoke the occasional laugh from this reviewer. If you're into this kind of f****d up wacky oddball stuff then this film definitely has something going for it. I still think some of the cast are better than the material that surrounds them though. Broadly the right side of average, but only just. 6/10
