A romantic comedy set in the world of battle re-enactments, about an irresponsible guy who has to shape up in order to win back his wife.
This film surprisingly proves that the internet is full of weirdos. Made with the assistance of MySpace (and representatives thereof) this is the achingly unhip story of battle re-enactment geek Richard (Marsan) attempting to win back his wife (Hynes) while beating Norman invaders along the way. His best friend (Bremmer) is a Trekkie trying to find a girl to love, and Richard’s son (Hamilton) is being bullied at school because daddy is such an oddball. The stage is set for a Full Monty-like story, but Richard is so pathetic that it’s very hard to root for him - the laughs come few and far between in a story as drab as the Northern skies under which it is set.
