Really fun & entertaining movie
31 October 2009 | by moviechick222See all my reviews

LOVED this little movie that I caught opening weekend in London. It's surprisingly funny and entertaining. Tamar Hassan is sure to be a big star- he's like a bigger and more handsome Antonio Banderas. Could see this being a breakout role for him like Sexy Beast was for Ray Winston. He's tough but sexy and charming.

and Brenda Blethyn is genius. I'm still laughing at some of her lines. The people in my theatre were cheering after her last scene (when you see it you'll know what I'm talking about).

Don't miss this little gem. Good pure entertainment.

Great soundtrack also.
