4 London DJs trying to pay their debts.
18 September 2001 | by jkmacrSee all my reviews

Very funny and a well done effort for a first movie from this director. Likeable, real characters.

Some of it did not feel all that original, but it was played well and the story moved along quickly and for the most part smoothly.

Doubt that it will show up in the main screens, but you may catch it at a rep theatre or on video. Recommended for a evening's distraction.
