Storyline

Three different scenarios, intercut, all using the same words but with very different meanings. A corrupt cop is more interested in the money on the criminals he catches than justice; a young woman discovers she's pregnant, and her boyfriend is unfeeling; and a young man calls a prostitute it's the first time for both, and neither can go through with it. Ultimately, all the stories come together. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Confusing and aimless
26 February 2010 | by beanochrisSee all my reviews

This film has some clever ideas going for it: the idea of using the same conversation in three different scenarios with three different sets of people is an interesting concept, but unfortunately it is not realised effectively. It seems as if the writer has written the conversation for one of the strands first and has clumsily tried to fit them into the other sections unsuccessfully.

I also think that using the 'infinite monkey theory' to bind this story together is a very confusing concept, given that it is only given a small amount of screen time and is barely referred to or acknowledged in the rest of the film. It also doesn't help that the three sections all contain tired,overused clichés.

There are some good ideas, but incredibly poorly executed.
