Quotes

[first lines]
Voice over: We have survived on this planet for five million years. Today, we face extinction. Male sperm counts now are in freefall, the average man now producing less than half the sperm their grandfathers did in their prime. Are we witnessing the beginning of the end for the human race? Are we doomed? Every day I ask myself this question: Where might we find a superman, a new Adam, to reverse the decline of the fertile man?

Great craic!
9 June 2004 | by jill_davidsonSee all my reviews

I found this film very funny and easy to watch, I suppose really it would be classed as a romantic comedy. Its all set in Belfast and perhaps the fact that that's where I'm from is what made it appeal to me so much. Its a great story which incorporates many facets of life in Belfast without being heavy going, rather it pokes fun at them. The majority of the cast certainly sound as if they are from N.Ireland, although the lead role is an English guy - but his Belfast accent is pretty good, and definitely doesn't detract from the film at all. I was surprised by the low ratings others have given this film and can only guess that they didn't get the Belfast humour in it.
