He wakes up in her bed. He's Josh, an Australian photographer living in London, on holiday in Sydney, leaving in three days. She's Cinthia (Cin), a dress designer. They've met at a party and shared a cab back to their respective places, they're attracted to each other, he'll be gone in three days (no complications), so he stays the night. Each of them talks to the camera occasionally, commenting on what happens; so do her female friends and his male ones. An omniscient taxi driver also helps out. How will those three days go? What could be better than sex? Written by <>

Did You Know?


Josh stands naked in front of the sink, with his back to the camera, but in the next shot, before he says that he thinks he's gained weight, he's wearing black and white underwear. See more »


Josh: [on the phone] Hey, Cin, it's me. Look I'm outside the apartment and I think the only thing for us to do is to have sex immediately.
[Listens for a moment, realizes he has the wrong number]
Josh: Oh, I'm sorry. Yes I'm sorry, look I thought you were somebody else. Okay, I'm sorry, bye.
[hangs up]
Josh: Ah FUCK.

What is better than sex? This film.....
12 October 2000 | by Audrey JSee all my reviews

This movie is very very good. It is highly enjoyable, definitely a couples movie. David Wenham and Suzie Porter are great as the leads, they are definitely one of the only screen couples that actually had chemistry, it was amazing to see. It is very funny, and very sexy, and very Aussie, what else can you ask for in a movie?

The direction in this movie is very well done, the story is good, I really loved this movie. And at times this film is better than sex! Congrats to the Producers you have yourselves a winning movie. 10/10 from me!!!
