Storyline

Frank Clayton, having abandoned his wife (Rachel) and child (Sam), has for the last ten years been living exclusively for himself. Working hard, drinking hard and womanising, Frank looks after number one. He has little to no relationship with his teenage son and socialises almost exclusively with his misogynist boss (Bill). Frank's son, Sam, has profound self-esteem problems. He grew up thinking that his father left because of him. He is about to fail his secondary school exams and, more importantly, he is having a very difficult time trying to talk to lovely Amy, the girl in his school who he loves. His mother (Rachel), as dedicated and loving as she can be, is struggling to offer him any real support. She reaches out to Frank for help, only to get his typically immature evasion. She has had enough... In conversation with some friends she discovers that some men change only when facing death. And although she is too good to harm Frank, she figures out a way of making Frank believe ... Written by Andres Dussan

Nice little Brit Flick, gentle comedy
18 October 2016 | by swallockbettySee all my reviews

Watched this as it came up on Sky movies. What a surprise. Wasn't expecting that much. But it was a good Brit Comedy, not big box office, but I would recommend watching it. Couple of real laugh out loud scenes. Sound track for the whole film is ace. Probably not one you'd want to watch with children, but it is a Cert 15 for a reason. Think that's obvious from the start as the main character works in the sex industry. Lots of dildos being waved about! He has what he thinks is a wake up call, and decides to make up for his behaviour so far. Love the scene in the treehouse with his son. Liked all the main characters, even the slimy one. No surprise in the end, love will out of course.
