Description
Honest sentiment and deft comic acting are the bywords for this 2002 British release, which pays bemused homage to the westerns of Sergio Leone. Rhys Ifans plays Dek, a Welshman whose girlfriend (the wonderful Shirley Henderson) has rejected his offer of marriage on daytime TV. Her ex-partner Jimmy (Robert Carlyle) springs into action and rides into town, determined to get his woman back.

"A mainstream comedy with a lot of laughs, crammed with nice performances and most importantly some genuine and touching emotion. It is easily the equal of overpraised British milestones like Billy Elliot and The Full Monty…. Meadows has brought off that tricky mix of unassuming British littleness, pluck, daring and self-deprecation…. Meadows, armed with co-writer Paul Fraser's sparkling, well-constructed script, puts Rhys Ifans right back at the top of his game. (4 stars)"—The Guardian
