It's love at first sight when Stevie and kitchen installer Neil meet. But she's pregnant with her Italian footballer husband and Neil and his girlfriend are adopting Mgala from Burkina Faso. Is it too late for love and happiness?
When Stevie meets Neil on the day he comes to deliver her brand new kitchen, it's already too late for love at first sight. Too late for both of them. Stevie is already five minutes pregnant by her Spanish footballer husband. And too late for Neil too - his wife Jenny has already applied to adopt an African girl. But too late or otherwise, love at first sight is exactly what happens. How can Neil and Stevie get out of their mistaken marriages and into each others arms?
The production was supported by Newcastle City Council and other regional agencies to try and promote a more positive image of Tyneside. However the film never secured wide distribution and its own limited run in Newcastle earned less than £1,200. See more »
I've just seen this movie on DVD. Its sweet and surprisingly funny. And has two great performances from Richard Roxburgh and Justine Waddell. The best scenes in the film are when they're together. You really want them to have their happy ending. The direction is erratic, and the writing's weak, but they're charming so it doesn't matter. There's also a funny performance by Michael Hodgson. Newcastle looks good, and the movie has a fun soundtrack. I wish there were cast interviews and more behind the scenes footage on the DVD. It kind of looks like it was done on the cheap. But the movie itself is sweet and funny. A good way to spend a Sunday evening.
