Directed by Debbie Griffiths
Justin and Julie-Ann, both in computers and hopelessly mismatched in love, are about to introduce their respective parents to each other over dinner: Justin’s upper-crust alcoholic mother from Surrey and Julie-Ann’s bigoted Yorkshire father and prim mother. Into this doomed scenario drops, literally, via the balcony upstairs, Paige Petite, a former lap-dancer with suicidal tendencies and her thick, gun-toting minder who is employed by her violent boyfriend. They proceed to wreak havoc on the meticulously planned evening, but the brilliantly orchestrated mayhem is tempered by subtle insights into family relationships and class distinctions.
