Mark is a wannabe actor, penniless, clueless, and inept. He cares for a brother who's paraplegic, and he has a girlfriend, Sally, who wants out of the relationship. His idea of life is to go to the occasional audition, dodge his landlord (having spent the rent money Sally gave him), give Sally a hang-dog look, and talk with Pearce, who lives upstairs. Mark's flat is in disrepair: the kitchen window slams shut, bits of plaster fall from the ceiling, a bulb fizzes, and the sitting-room chandelier sways. When an awful accident happens, Mark freezes, which precipitates additional accidents; he finally calls Pearce, perhaps the worst decision possible. Will Mark come to his senses? Written by
So, what's going on?
I get to start? It's um, it's good, it was good. I, I got you a copy on DVD. And it's one of those medical... drama... hospital things.
Concerned neighbor. This the part here?
Doesn't really matter whether he looks like, does it?

Dylan Moran I'm not sure about Dylan Moran. I cant decide if i find him funny, or pathetic. He seems to have this physical presence of someone who suffers from slight parkinsons or serious alcoholism and i honestly don't know which it is but its somewhat disturbing. The point is though when it comes to casting he's limited to the roles he can play but for this one he's ideally suited.
This film is very dark and slightly funny film. The story, humour, dialogue is all uniquely Irish and will appeal to most but to those who get it especially. The premise is in the tradition of British comedy, unfeasibly ridiculous beyond belief. Two down and out wannabe script writer/film makers bundle their way through a series of explainable but hard to believe accidents which are made all the more worse by their bungled attempts to cover them up. No where does the film make sense but it's not supposed to, if you approach this film with logic you're wasting your time. You have to submit yourself to total fantasy and Irish wit. This film is in fact Murphy's Law.
There are no perfect teeth American heroes to save the day, no beautiful people to carry the film on their looks, no slush no montage scenes of pretty woman hat changes, this film is as dark, damp, dreary and miserable as the dank basement flat it's set in and that's how it's supposed to be, a good British film.
Is it hilarious? No not really, is it funny? yes.
