Juliet, Naked is the story of Annie (the long-suffering girlfriend of Duncan) and her unlikely transatlantic romance with once revered, now faded, singer-songwriter, Tucker Crowe, who also happens to be the subject of Duncan's musical obsession.
On the eve of retirement a middle class, judgmental snob discovers her husband has been having an affair with her best friend and is forced into exile with her bohemian sister who lives on an impoverished inner-city council estate.
Steve Coogan and Paul Rudd star as Erasmus and Paul, a bickering gay couple whose life is turned inside out when a ten-year old boy shows up at their door claiming to be Erasmus' grandson. Neither Paul, nor Erasmus, are ready to give up their extravagant lifestyles to be parents, but maybe this little kid has a thing or two to teach them about the value of family.
The running gag of Taco Bell in the film came from the director Andrew Fleming's idea that the kid was a really pretentious foodie, and what's the most annoying thing that could happen. See more »
in the very beginning of the film you see Erasmus talking to 'producer' Paul, the camera pens back and forth and in one back of Paul he wears his sunglasses and in the rest of the shots not. See more »
This is a really funny movie. This isn't a portrayal of a regular gay couple, it is a whimsical view of a well to do gay couple that are 2 big ole kids themselves. They are out of touch with "all the little people". The sparring is kind of over the top, but at the same time- just right on the mark. Give it a chance, you'll love it by the end. My fave part is the 2nd parent/teacher conference, right after the Kid's class speech.
