Those that are not familiar with British Cinema may not even know much of the cast here but the comedy translates into any culture. The trailer looked pretty good so I was interested in seeing this but the film itself turned out to be even better. The lead actor Dexter Fletcher may not have the looks but he fits the story and situations perfectly, the film also has Linda Hamilton in it as a friend and amateur sleuth who is trying to help figure out why his dreams are coming true but also to help prevent the one dream he keeps having over and over, someone is going to die. Susan George also is in the film and plays the step-mother from hell. Like I said before this comedy is universal, everyone can relate to the humor and the film also has a nice bit of romance for the ladies. But for the most part it is a comedy and one that is often hilarious and always funny. I thought was story was fresh,clever and it was also a nice original spin on the genre making this one of the best comedies I have seen in awhile. Director, Gary Sinyor has done a terrific job making this a fast paced comedy that is never boring and having such a terrific cast to work with I'm sure didn't hurt. If your a fan of comedy then I highly recommend picking this charming and funny film up today on DVD. Released by BFS Entertainment. **** Out Of *****
