The Supergrass Details


In this romantic comedy that wobbles along on a shaky plot -- the first full-length feature of a Brit TV show -- Dennis ([[Performer~P21194~Adrian Edmondson~adrianedmondson]]) is on vacation with his mother when he invents a tall tale of his involvement with a drug cartel in order to impress a woman he likes. Sure enough, his story accidentally tallies with what the police already know, and before he can cry "wolf," Dennis is sent off to the coast with two undercover cops. One cop is a woman ([[Performer~P63283~Jennifer Saunders~jennifersaunders]]) and the other her former boyfriend ([[Performer~P20537~Harvey Duncan~carmenduncan]]) -- but the woman has to pretend to be Dennis' lover. Then along comes a string of several unique policemen and a few real drug smugglers, one in drag, adding their eccentricity to the growing group of comic characters. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
