    I found this film to be sharp and entertaining. Those who know Dreyfus from stuff like Gimme Gimme Gimme and The Thin Blue Line will be suitably impressed by his performance. He usually gets typecast, but here he plays a very different character to what he normally does.

    It`s a very funny film, which reminds me a bit of Woody Allen. I was also pleasantly surprised by the number of extra features in this disc, including a very funny deleted scenes.

    Overall, it`s worth a look. As far as British film go, this is defintitely one of the better ones!
