The October house partnership
25 April 2005 | by grantndownieSee all my reviews

Good early 90's piece of teenage Britain when we had a Torie government and the Stone Roses where really big. Oh how times change, him from the press gang once again type cast as the funny crazy mate who hatches a bet with a sensible clever friend. All in all the plot works well and Martin Short turns up too just before father of the Bride. I remember enjoying this immensely and as well as a good amount of laughs the characters are people most teenage boys can relate too. The immortal line "I cant make the deal because i've got to get back to school on Monday" Was classic. And the part with bellboy was also great. Just a pity this has'nt been on more.
