A truly brilliant film. A poignant portrayal of addiction whilst also seeing the lighter side of life. Thank you Peter Howitt and all those who aided the making of it.

This film is so bad. The characters are unlikable. Not funny in the slightest. Every joke is terrible and their are a lot of them. Don't waste your time, drivel .

Awful

I made that time old mistake of buying this because I love Saffron Burrows but this, for me, was an unwatchable film. Crude with a hollow script, no one will buy it from my car boot stall (and I don't blame them).

I saw Dangerous Parking on its limited cinema release...what a sharp, cleverly constructed tale filled with many many laughs. It was a surprise excellent view. Can't wait to get a second look with my own copy of the DVD. It had my partner doubled over with laughter and me in tears, what more can you ask. Great entertainment for the over 18's with a good sense of humour. Could be a Brit classic.

"200 miles from home, and a billion miles from my soul ...and I am not a happy camper"
This seems a tad pretentious to start with. At first I thought that this was a film produced in the guise of Guy Ritchie, complete with swearing trendy middle class, working-class-wannabes - but the film quickly exposes the realities of the people revered as cool and becomes very much it's own as undignified bouts of drug induced vomiting and paranoia become the routine of the day.

The film takes the world of self important film media trendies and shows us the very personal story of one of those in the centre of it all, and his journey save himself. We get a narrative and a retrospective showing us how Noah Arkwright's life has led to the point where the end of it could be in sight, and the changes involved to try to salvage it. Most of the scenes jump between different times in Noah's life, this seems a bit strange at times though it's never disorientating - but like the pieces of a 3D Eiffel tower jigsaw, they all fall into place by the end of the film.

Peter Howitt gives a superb performance as Noah. He produced, directed, and wrote the screenplay for this film - `That fella from Bread' is obviously a very talented member of the British Film industry and I'll be looking out for future work. You get a real sense that he's found a genre he can excel in, "Sliding Door"s may well have been a clever concept - but he has definitely matured as a writer since "Johnny English"!

In a nutshell: Another reviewer drew parallels with Withnail and I (my favourite film of all time) and I think it's a great observation. This film is more emotional - but it has that same mix of seeing a man very much convinced of by own feeling of self importance become a man at his pitiful lowest.
What started off as a stylistic dark comedy becomes a poignant insight into the vulnerable mind of an alcoholic. Most of the dialogue becomes narration and this helps to emphasise the truly personal aspect of his story. It is a genuinely funny film at times, and a genuinely harrowing film too, it gets very emotional and brought a tear to my eye.
