Storyline

Northern Irish TV chef Harry has a history of playing around, being drunk and fighting with his wife. On the eve of his divorce hearing, Harry is beaten up at a garage but goes to work the next day. Acting increasingly disorientated and unusual he finally slips into a coma. Coming out of the coma later, Harry thinks he is 18 and can't remember anything past that. His wife doesn't tell him what a total s*** he has been and tries to form him into a better person. But when Harry discovers his recent past he is shaken and tries to carry on as normal.

Not too wild about this one
6 May 2003 | by bbbl67See all my reviews

I don't know about this one, I hate to be down about this film: the idea of the film was interesting, and the acting was passable. Where it fell down was in the storyline, it just felt dull. Amanda Donohoe just felt too bland as a suffering housewife, dealing with her husband's infidelities; I'm used to her playing lesbians and snakewomen and stuff like that. I can't even imagine a fat lard like Harry would be cheating on a hotwife like Ruth (Donohoe); but I suppose if we could accept Michael Douglas cheating on hotwife Anne Archer with Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction, then we can accept this. I just wasn't convinced by the characters in this movie.
