Review

Our Score
British cinema has had some embarrassing blots on its copybook, but it's hard to think of a more inept outing than writer/director Chris Cooke's feature debut. Stripped of their licenses for drink driving, boy racer Greg Chisholm, cabbie Mark Devenport, salesman Rupert Procter and wealthy entrepreneur Hywel Bennett refuse to take their rehabilitation classes seriously and end up putting the world to rights in the local pub. The dire proceedings culminate in a drunken confrontation at Bennett's mansion, but the majority of the audience will have long ceased to care about these vulgar losers or their miserable lives.

Summary

Four very different men are ordered to attend a rehabilitation programme after being caught drink-driving - but one looks set to take a financial tumble at the hands of his scheming fellow offenders. British comedy, starring Hywel Bennett, Mark Davenport, Greg Chisholm and Rupert Procter.
