Marc Benjamin Puch,
In the midst of his crumbling relationship, a radio show host begins speaking to his biggest fan, a young boy, via the telephone. But when questions about the boy's identity come up, the host's life is thrown into chaos.
Sam and Lucy Bell are a married couple who seem to have it all: good looks, successful careers and an enthusiastic love life. The only thing they lack is the one thing they want most - a baby. They try everything in their efforts to reproduce: New Age chanting, acupuncture, creative lovemaking... but all this hectic schedule achieves is improvement in their cardiovascular systems.

Media Types Making a film about Media types, aren't they wonderful
You can see why the British film industry is in dire straights. Well connected media types, on whacking salaries, leading empty shallow lives,which revolve around social climbing and being "in", all the time pretending they aren't what they are.
Who Then make a film about "Well connected media types, on whacking salaries, leading empty shallow lives,which revolve around social climbing and being "in", all the time pretending they aren't what they are, just to give a hint to the masses how hard they have it and how wonderful they are. Because they have nothing else in their lives, other than their well connected jobs and issue wives.
Not much talent, not much effort just a run through of "in"jokes and clichés you would know about if you were in that circle. Hugh Laurie was v good as Bertie Wooster, because thats really what he is in real life
