Film details


A romantic comedy set in London, about two resourceful young men who live together in a converted gasometer: a smooth-talking American and a shy British electronics expert, who have a shared ambition to own a stately home. In the course of an elaborate computer scam, they meet a female medical student who temps in offices for extra money. She is about to marry the unscrupulous man who runs her ancestral mansion as a residential home. The residents include her Down's syndrome brother.

Romantic comedy set in London. Dylan and Jez are two con-artists. They hire Georgie as secretary to pull off a job selling a fake voice-recognition computer. Georgie becomes intrigued with them when she realises they aren't the top businessman and scientist they present themselves as. Georgie is no secretary either, but a medical student stuck in a fusty engagement to an aristocrat.
