If Tom only knew
25 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There isn't much really we can say about this film…except that it is (in many parts) pretty funny.

The way we saw this film, was that Henry (Johnny Owen) is approached in his local pub by a Prostitute (Denise Welch), who claims that she has the severed penis remains of a Welsh Pop Idol – Supposedly Tom Jones – who tells Henry that on the right market he could make thousands of pounds. Now, Henry, is in dire straights, as he needs money to survive the wrath of his Girlfriend (Eve Myles), who believes that Henry is a Dreamer and unable to get a proper job to support himself. Believing that the penis can bring a fruitful bounty he buys it.

Going through many sequences of events, from being beaten up, ripped off, chased, thrown out by his girlfriend and finally saddened by a tragic accident by the piece of meat, Henry returns to where he started. Needless to say that Henry's Girlfriend (Eve Myles) adds a much-needed portion of the humour, as does the Kinky Granny (Margaret John), who asks in an ordinary tone: "Do you have the two veg with you?" Filmed entirely in Tredegar, Blaenau Gwent, Wales, UK it is no wonder that the slapstick humour is sometimes unreachable by outside cultures, although, the only one question which arises throughout the film is "Where the hell is Tom Jones?".

With a 15 certificate on this production, we felt that it should have been a lot more raunchy, adult orientated as a comedy and even more clearly emphasised on the problems that Henry and his Girlfriend were going through. Instead, what you get is a slow-moving movie that shows that the script has been walked slowly over as to avoid censorship. Maybe we're wrong, but the plot is good and would be best produced or directed by Roman Polanski or even Guy Richie.

A Bit Of Tom Jones is available to rent or buy on DVD now.

DVD Archive Rating: 6/10 (7/10 if Eve Myles had a bigger part)
