Gemma won a posthumous award for Best Screenplay at the Unrestricted View Horror Film Festival, along with Paul Renhard and Dave Gilbank. She wrote many of the film's gags and the 'card scene' and is credited by director Gilbank for giving the film a 'greater emotional resonance'. See more »

one more star for unplanned accidental funny moments
13 January 2019 | by p-lipiecSee all my reviews

It would like to be "Snatch" but it's not. :D The taste is not the best. Complication of plot is pretty simple. Solving out is very much predictable. Anyway I loved Polish gang for its absurds. Generally it's so bad that becomes interesting.
