Storyline

John Smith (Danny Dyer) has been happily involved in a bigamous marriage for five years. He lives with Stephanie (Sarah Harding) in Finsbury and Michelle (Denise Van Outen) in Stockwell. Fortunately, for John, he's a taxi driver which involves varying shift work. Simple? Well, when John unwittingly becomes a have-a-go hero and the Finsbury and Stockwell Police forces discover something suspicious in their paperwork, John's happy bubble is about to be burst. The action of the movie takes place during the next hectic twenty-four hours as John, with the assistance of his gullible neighbor Gary Gardner (Neil Morrissey), rush between North and South London attempting to thwart the Police and prevent the two loving wives from coming face to face.

This movie made me kill myself
18 April 2019 | by flutesandrootsSee all my reviews

I am writing this from beyond the grave. I hope the director is happy. This film caused me to lose all hope in humanity and I threw myself under a bus. It's not too bad here, actually. The sushi is endless and really excellent and the soundtrack is amazing. I'm assuming that the people in the other place have to watch Run For Your Wife on a loop forever. I can't see any other reason for its existence.
