Product Description

Three London motorcycle couriers Fred (Gary Stretch), Tyg (Geoff Bell) and Grouch (Phil Daniels) set off from the capital in search of an elusive hippy and his cannabis farm in the Welsh mountains. Originally intended as a nice weekend in the country, Fred has now found himself making a promise to his old friend the Chairman that whatever situations arise he will not return empty handed. Grouch has also made a promise that come Monday morning he ll be moving himself and his belongings into his new found love Lucinda s flat, and finally making an attempt at the world of serious relationships. As for Tyg, no such pact. This is a man who s never been further than the outskirts of London, and as far as he s concerned an industrial unit near Heathrow Airport is pretty much the back of beyond. No, Tyg s out to explore; to broaden his horizons; to lose any ignorance and soak up the hospitality of another nation. But, what are those wild beast noises coming from the woods and why are there two gangs of bikers in the area about to settle an old score? Throw in a seven foot, masked, lovesick Russian wrestler and things could really get out of hand. That said, it may also have something to do with the wild mushrooms they had for breakfast. It s a three and a half hour journey from London to the Welsh mountains, but for Fred, Tyg and Grouch it s just about to turn into the trip of a lifetime.

Well the last bloke reviewing this film has obviously got a personal vendetta on someone because me and my friends gave it a spin on the off chance one dreary wednesday afternoon and laughed out loud all the way through, the acting was great, the story was great, its a heap load of fun, perfect to liven up a dull night sat at home with the wife!!

This is a small budget britflick and I wasn't sure how I would enjoy it when my husband took me to see it. I needn't have worried, it was absoloutly hysterical, it was well written with a typical British sense of humour. The guy who reviewed it earlier on must have been watching it in his sleep as everyone who was in the cinema with us was roaring with laughter. I have only seen a few other films that has had the audience laughing out loud so much. I am now buying the DVD as I have been dying to see it again.

I love this film, although I have seen a fair few reviews putting it down. Maybe we move in different circles, as I found the characters to have a lot of credibility - I have bumped into a Grouch (Phil Daniels) once or twice in my little lifetime, honest! Mind you, that side box was over-the-top enough to make me chuckle. Grouch stole this film, in my opinion. Just want to pick him up and cuddle him, he's such a softy sweetheart, naïve in all the right places. Fred (Gary Stretch, phwah!) is on the point of an epiphany, realising how important his daughter is to him. Fred needs to choose between what he wants and what he thinks he wants. Tyg (Geoff Bell) is an almost sobering influence on the trio. His character seems shadowed by his mates, but he needs to be there as a foundation for the trio. I'm sure a lot of people have met a Mole (sorry, don't have the actor's name). I know one in particular I'd love to pull such a stunt on, but can't mention him publicly - he's quite well known in my world and it might put ideas into the wrong (or right?) people's heads. When grouch read the paper report in Mrs Welsh Lady's shop, I chuckled!
My main concern was what our real Wessex lads think of seeing themselves portrayed as neatly combed Power Rangers, unorganised and generally dippy. Next time I bump into one, maybe I'll be tanked up enough to ask (then run!).
I hear MAG were a bit dubious about this film at first, but these characters do exist, though they seem to be becoming few and far between. Watching this film makes me realise what a duller world it will be when the likes are gone. Guess we'll have to give up the ghost to a nine-to-five, second-mortgage existence.
I'd like to says a great big THANKYOU to Jon Ivay.

The big cinema companies don't go for this type of movie, preferring the blockbuster productions with mega effects & a star packed cast. More fool them because this has the makings of a film that will grow & grow in popularity.

It's another (in a long line of) Britflick which successfully blends good acting (Phil Daniels looks as if he were born to the role!), great script which moves along nicely, a sound plot, fab soundtrack & scenery which we all too often forget about (must get to Hay On Wye more often!).

Make no mistake, this is a "must see" & it tips a nod to other movies such as Zulu, Easy Rider & even Braveheart - I suppose you'll have to watch it to see what I mean.

I don't want to spoil the film for future viewers, but the fact that the 3 central characters play bikers stoned out of their minds for most of the film certainly strikes a chord with me!

Enjoy & celebrate the fact that we still make excellent, quirky films like this.

I had this on my wish list since forever, cos I'd heard it wasn't all that good, but finally I coughed up the cash, and now I'm glad I did - lots of good laughs for anyone on the bike scene - I can't fault it - apparently it was taken from a stage play, and there is some good acting in there too, I recommend it - good fun, old style :)

I looked forward to watching this film ever since I read about its pending release in a well known weekly bike publication a while ago. Having ridden bikes for the last 24 years and a brief career as a motorcycle courier, I really thought this British made comedy would be a truly entertaining experience which I could relate to, especially because it included a couple of my favourite actors; Phil Daniels who was excellent in the all time classic 'Quadrophenia' and Gary Stretch who after a successful career as a professional boxer, made a seamless transition into acting in the truly brilliant 'Dead Man's Shoes' directed by Shane Meadows.

However I have to say that I was truly disappointed with this film which appears to have been written and directed by people with no understanding of real bikers and their lifestyles which varies greatly like most things in life. Instead it portrays the old (and very annoying) cliché that motorcyclists are a bunch of drug taking drop-outs who hang around in large gangs and like nothing better than a big fight with another rival gang. I can't deny that there are a very small minority of bikers who fit this bill, but most of us choose not to live our life like that!

It's one of those films that you keep watching and hoping that it will get better but never actually does. It doesn't really have much of a storyline or much in the way of comedy and some of the drug tripping moments which I presume are supposed to be hilarious are in fact really weird rather than amusing, unless of course you're into hallucinogenic drugs and on a trip yourself then perhaps they would be really funny man?
