Martin Freeman plays Chris, a frustrated TV producer who is forced to leave his unreliable flatmate Bob played by Velibor Topic in charge of showing a series of real estate agents around the house he is trying to sell. Worried by Bobs habit of spending all day working in the basement playing loud music, Chris asks his friend to listen out for the door bell and show anyone who comes calling inside. Bob promises to do exactly that and for once, not to let him down. Over the course of the day, whilst Chris struggles to cope with his insane TV presenter colleague Jerry, played by Richard Harrington - back at the house it is soon clear that bonkers Bob is taking his promise to Chris rather too literally. Bob has indeed, allowed anyone inside, including a couple of gun-toting gangsters - an incompetent young Brit played by Danny Dyer and an incontinent American played by Corey Johnson. That evening, Chris is surprised to return home and find his flatmate, four estate agents, two Jehovahs Witnesses, a corpse and a terrified childrens entertainer in what remains of his flooded kitchen. Of course, a roomful of water and broken furniture doesnt mean the end of the world - but the half-crazed American sitting outside the toilet with a gun, just might.

This was a very funny film, all the actors fit their roles very well, ieven enjoyed the French guy, he made added a lot of funny scenes to thefilm.Although its nowhere near as good as Shaun of the dead or HumanTraffic, it is a decent film and I'm glad other people have left goodcomments about it because otherwise i would not have watched this filmbecause of the bad comments it receive but I'm glad i did get to seethis film.Its quite a short film, 1hr 15mins but its well worth seeing.We need to support the British film industry so i will purchase thiswhen its available on DVD.
Was a flip between this and 28 weeks later. Glad I made the decision tosee this film. It felt rough along the edges, and there was a smallperiod of time when I wondered if this was to be a chuckle once film.However, as the story built it simply got funnier. The storyline was soobscure and unusual that it felt fresh, and original, even if it was abit low budget. With an array of strange characters, A low grade"gangster", a crazy screwed up TV presenter and even a clown, thisfilms suited to those people that need a laugh, and don't expect a bigbudget Mel Gibson thriller. Think of this film as a low budget Shaun ofthe Dead.
Oh dear. good cast, but to write and direct is an art and to write witand direct wit is a bit of a task. Even doing good comedy you have toget the timing and moment right. Im not putting it all down there wereparts where i laughed loud but that was at very few times. The mainfocus to me was on the fast free flowing dialogue, that made somepeople in the film annoying. It may sound great while reading thescript in your head but getting that out and to the camera is adifferent task. And the hand held camera work does give energy to fewparts of the film. Overall direction was good but the script was notall that to me, but I'm sure you was reading the script in your head itwould sound good. Sorry.
It pains me to write such a scathing review but by not doing so I'msimply encouraging these people. First off, just because a film is madeon a small budget does not automatically make it good nor endearing. Infact in this case, the small budget is probably the films soleachievement in that it prevented large sums of money from beingsquandered on a one legged race horse with the shits. Have you everseen a comedy at the theatre? Ever heard people laugh and thought "whatthe dickens are you on"? Well even these twats weren't laughing. Thingsgot so bad by mid way my cat took his first ever bath. This is notfilm, this is children....no monkeys making images that leave youfeeling like moving to France. Got to go, there's a clown at mydoor.............
