Did anyone else see it? It has to be one of the best British films ever made and was apparently Richard .E. Grants first film. If you haven't seen it I recommend going out and finding it now, it's about 2 out of works actors struggling to survive in abject poverty and one of them is a serious alcoholic (though they both are always drinking). It's very funny in a dark way obviously what with the poverty unemployment and alcoholism, and it's so well written it's a pleasure to watch and has some of the best lines ever. I hadn't seen it for years and found it on just by chance and would have missed it if I weren't channel hopping. I'm surprised there's not more discussion of this film on here, it was quite underground I suppose but is a cult film and relatively well known.
