Bob Askew's life isn't going the way he planned it, and after a particularly rough day at the office, he decides to travel to Blackpool and end it all with a leap off the pier. But psychology student Angela has other ideas. She drags Bob from the end of the pier, whisks him away and introduces him to a host of amazing characters who, one by one, rekindle his love of life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard to believe this is a directorial debut!! 30 Nov 2001
By Craig W
A truly enjoyable British film that follows our hero Bob through a very difficult weekend in his life. Just about every man's worst fears come to fruition for Bob, who then decides to deal with the fallout by going on the run in what could only be described as a Northern Walkabout. He is helped along the way by Angela, who becomes his companion and guardian angel. Their journey is funny, sad, happy, but mostly surreal. There are some fantastic performances including a powerful (extended)cameo by Brian Glover in one of his last film appearances. Corrie fans will get a huge kick out of seeing Bruce Jones (Les Battersby on the Street)as Bob, whose performance does nothing less than suck you into his world. The flow of the film is very exacting, pacey, and takes your emotions on ride as if you were on the pier in Blackpool. It is hard for me to believe that this was Jevon O'Neill's first feature film as a director. O'Neill's style is surely his own, but I was reminded of Capra throughout, and the way he tactfully injects misery,humour,and imagery makes the film very enjoyable. I have watched it a few times now, and I even have some favourite lines (always a good metric of a movie in my book).

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth A Watch 11 April 2004
Those with a fondness for Blackpool will enjoy this film, which visits all the well known sites throughout the film. With some notable cameos from Brian Glover and Ricky Tomlinson, along with a very strong performance from new comer Charlotte Jones, this movie is worth a try. But who is Bob ? Well he is none other than "Corries" own, Les Battersby.

3.0 out of 5 stars The British 'It's a wonderful life'??? Not so much. 9 Sep 2014
By Bill the Cat - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An offbeat, odd fantasy/comedy that didn't always work for me. The casual way that it slipped back and forth from reality to fantasy made it seem clumsy to me, although over-all it was mildly entertaining.
