Storyline

Simon is a timid man, scratching out an isolated existence in an indifferent world. He is overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams. He feels powerless to change any of these things. The arrival of a new co-worker, James, serves to upset the balance. James is both Simons exact physical double and his opposite - confident, charismatic and good with women. To Simons horror, James slowly starts taking over his life. Written by StudioCanal

Do not bother
8 April 2014 | by (Brighton) – See all my reviews

What a dreadful film, boring, unfunny, has no idea what it is meant to be, several people got up & walked out, I was tempted to join them but stuck it through to the end, but wish I had not wasted my time.

Described as "comedy", it certainly was not that, references to suicide (actual & attempted) are NOT funny but serious matters.

The film did not seem to know where it was going, the characters were totally unconvincing, much of the film was shot in the half dark, difficult to make out what is going on, the diction was poor at times.

A waste of an evening and money, a pointless film.

Give this one a miss, I wish I had!
