While Jo (Roberts) is chained down in a dead end supermarket job, her friends are all out on their own separate adventures: Cassandra (Egerton) is jetting off to New York to meet her Internet boyfriend; Kerrys (Warren-Markland) is on a one woman crusade fighting for female liberation and Shannon (Lovibond) is on a one way trip to meet her maker. But a chance encounter with some diamond thieves sends their separate worlds on a collision course with not only each other, but fate itself. These 4 girls are about to have 3 days they will never forget, spanning to 2 cities. That is ... if they survive. Written by
Actor, writer and director decides he wants to write female characters and makes the film with fours interlinked perspective 188.8.131.52.
It is a Tarantino attempt to make a fast paced film with a twist of Modern French cinema but it misfires.
The film starts promising enough with Shannon's story but loses focus with Cassandra's story where we suddenly end up in New York and Kevin Smith on the plane journey there.
The film concludes with Joanne's story where the interlinked events come together but it does rely on some strange coincidences. The four female leads inject a lot of vibrancy and spirit but there are just too many unsympathetic side characters which leaves you uninvolved with only Alexander Siddig playing the Brazilian dad being the most warm hearted in his brief appearance.
As always with Clarke's films there are a lot of Doctor Who links: We have Sean Pertwee (son of Jon Pertwee.) Emma Roberts father (Eric Roberts) played the Master so has Kate Magowan's husband (John Simm). Camille Coduri and Nicholas Briggs make guest appearances who were regulars during Clarke's stint in Doctor Who.
