“….so is this all my fault?....me… Ben Willis?” [opening voice-over]
on 29 July 2017
In this 2006 humorous British fantasy drama, aspiring student artist Ben Willis develops insomnia after a painful breakup with his girlfriend, Suzy, and begins working nights at a local supermarket where he imagines that he can stop time so he can undress and draw the female customers. But can the daydream become reality?
The start is quite low key and filled with Bens depressing soul searching but, having set the plot, this then picks up a lot. Very much a British film, you really need to appreciate British humour as there is a lot of visual sitcom as individuals overcome mundane tasks and adversity, providing some really funny moments along the way and some sad.
After a single trailer the disc offers play, scene selection, set-up [2.0/5.1, and confusing commentary/subtitles on/off] and extras [making of, deleted scenes, trailer]. Rated 18 this has nudity from the start, explicit nude sketches and full frontal nudity, it’s certainly not politically correct featuring workplace sexism, numerous health and safety issues and lots of references about the female form. Not a fast movie, but certainly one full of characters and if you can get to grips with the humour it should be a worthwhile watch. Remember… the clock is the enemy!
