Storyline

John Smith has been happily involved in a bigamous marriage for five years. He lives with Stephanie in Finsbury and Michelle in Stockwell. Fortunately, for John, he's a taxi driver which involves varying shift work! Simple? Well, when John unwittingly becomes a have-a-go hero and the Finsbury and Stockwell police forces discover something suspicious in their paperwork, John's happy bubble is about to be burst. The action of the movie takes place during the next hectic 24 hours as John, with the assistance of his gullible neighbor Gary, rush between North and South London attempting to thwart the police and prevent the two loving wives coming face to face!

So bad that its actually.... terrible
23 September 2013 | by (Belfast) – See all my reviews

i was astounded at how bad this movie actually was. I had heard all the bad reviews and thought that nothing could be that bad, so in a way i was actually looking forward to seeing it. How wrong i was. The best thing i can say about this movie is that Danny Dyer isn't the worst thing in it, not by a long chalk. Denise van Outen can take a bow for claiming that accolade. Her portrayal of one of the wives is a nadir in acting, she screeches and gurns the whole way through the movie, chewing every bit of scenery and being so annoying that you actually feel sorry for Danny Dyer's character. She also sings the song at the end credits so do yourself a favour and switch off when they appear. Everyone involved in this movie should hang their heads in shame. there is not one single funny bit in it, even though several cameo characters laugh at the on screen action, as if trying to convince the audience it is funny. the way it is scripted , paced, filmed and acted makes it look like a Chuckle Brothers movie. In fact it makes the Chuckle Brothers look like the Marx brothers. i felt dirty and ashamed after watching this movie, save yourself that feeling and avoid at all costs.
