These scenes have so much bite to them that we wish Cookson had spent a lot more time working on the whole script. There's basically just one joke in this scruffy British comedy, and it's dragged out painfully for the better part of an hour before the script finally clicks into gear. But eventually, after racing around in search of yet another silly gag, the plot finally pays off in an amusing confrontation with the hooker and then a madcap family dinner. There are few laughs in this film because stupidity is passed off as comedy without any basis or punch-line for humour. Other than her the plot of this film mimics such Vince Vaughan gems of the absurd as the Dilemma.
They take a serious yet simple problem and morph it into a saga-like road trip in an attempt to find a hooker who may have given the groom the clap only a few weeks before his wedding. Being serious is considered 'weak' - especially at the pub. First of all, who plans a stag night three full months before the wedding? But even without knowing what's up, Lydia begins to doubt whether they should get married. The only time when Kyle can face up to his dilemma is when he has broken free of Jarvis and set out on his own to confront Lydia with what he thinks is the truth about what happened. The British used to be good at this. This is the kind of boneheaded logic that infuses the entire film and leaves us unable to believe anything that happens. I'm looking for some intelligent comedy being made other than Woody Allen films.
. Writer-director Ben Cookson never even touches on this, instead barrelling on with the goofy antics. The film also depicts the fragility of male bonding: the only way in which Kyle, Jarvis and their mates can get on is to make jokes at one another's expense. Jarvis offers several elaborate excuses, while Kyle chooses a more subtle approach. When Kyle returns from his stag-do with a sexually transmitted disease, he's left unable to have sex with his fiancée Lydia in the run-up to their wedding.
Ben Cookson's film contains a relentless stream of bawdy jokes, allied to a peculiarly British modesty when it comes to talking about sexual matters. When Kyle discovers that he has a sexually transmitted disease, he decides not to tell Lydia. Likeable actors help hold our interest until then, giving realistic performances even if everything about the movie is deeply implausible. Everyone on-screen does inexplicable things and fails to ask the blindingly obvious questions. After a picaresque series of adventures, including a dash up to Newcastle to visit its brothels, he discovers that he is perfectly healthy, and that the disease has originated from somewhere else.
McGinley delivers a convincing characterization of Kyle, who tries to sustain a laddish image while trying to reflect on his past and future life. It starts three months before the wedding of Kyle and Lydia Philip McGinley and , as Kyle's best man Jarvis Mark Stobbart takes him on a series of stag-night activities including naked paint-balling and a visit to a brothel. By the film's end it had become so tedious I couldn't wait for the credits. It is almost as if they are apprehensive about appearing too 'normal' - i. But how can he avoid sex until the final all-clear test in 90 days time? Synopsis When Kyle returns from his stag-do with a sexually transmitted disease, he's left unable to have sex with his fiancée Lydia in the run-up to their wedding. The basic framework is straightforward: Kyle Philip McGinley is reluctant to go through with his marriage to fiancée Lydia Emily Attack in the belief that he has contracted a sexually transmitted disease.
This film isn't one of those products. While Kyle and his best friend Jarvis Mark Stobart are perfectly happy to dream up increasingly ludicrous methods of overcoming Kyle's problem in the pub over several pints of lager, they are obviously ill-at-ease when they visit the sexual health clinic. I did say there is a twist Not the best movie out there but not bad - It's worth a watch. Fortunately, McGinley and Stobbart create believable morons who care about each other, so we care about them too. And at least the final act has some genuine wit in it. Kyle himself finds it very difficult to talk to the doctor Val McLane : Cookson's camera focuses on his increasingly troubled countenance as he tries to tell the truth about his sexual past.
