    Michael Caine in a comedic role is irresistible (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) and Jane Horrocks I knew only as Bubble from Absolutely Fabulous (not my favorite character from that Series but definitely a stand out show). I had no expectations for this film but ended up enjoying it immensely. If nothing else it was a nice reprieve from all the standard American fare that year.

  1. The movie is often as raucous and seedy as its less-attractive characters, but it gains power from inventive acting and poignant touches.

    Actress Jane Horrocks is so good in this drama that you'll hardly notice -- or care -- that the rest of the film isn't quite up to snuff.
  3. This terrific movie manages to invest kitchen-sink realism with the soul of a fairy tale.
