Storyline

Billy is a single twenty-something. His friends are concerned and are determined to help him find a partner. Handsome artist Will suggests he join him in the delights of clandestine direct debit sex. Will's fiance Jules sets him up with a blind date. However, Billy has fallen in lust with Dodie a gorgeous blonde who works in his local coffee shop. Jules is having the usual qualms about getting married unaware that Will is paying for sex and carrying on an affair with her best friend Daphne.

Smug, pointless and impossible to like...
24 September 2000 | by The Movie GoblinSee all my reviews

I'll make this short and sweet. You will not like, empathise, root for or understand any of the characters in this pointless little London-based drama. They have the combined depth of a paddling pool. It's produced by the team who made 'This Life' for the BBC -- I never saw that show, but if it's anything like Elephant Juice... I'm glad I missed it. Avoid.
