movie revolves around Stephen (Edward Hogg) who suffers from a variety
of mental health problems and also has a seriously whacked out
compulsive disorder where he collects and catalogues everything he owns,
even urine. Sounds a bit weird and maybe familiar? That's because this
movie comes from the classic pop culture hit, The Might Boosh! The
journey of Stephen is an interesting one for the viewer which swaps
between many different time lines and begins with him in the dumps.
Unfortunately his hoarding has caused his home to be inundated with mice
and now he needs to leave the protection of his own home and basically
get his act together. The viewer is then taken on a flashback journey of
how Stephen became this hermit and became the sheltered individual that
he is today.
all started because a girl declined his advances and this is where his
friend Bunny comes into the picture who decides to take him on a
whirlwind tour of Europe and more specifically... get him laid.
Eventually the two meet Eloisa (Veronica Echegui) and Stephen and Eloisa
hit it off where they even visit her home town in Spain. Even though
there are some laugh out moments in this film, it's actually quite an
insightful drama thanks to the cast and director and of course the
relationships between these three uniquely different individuals.

Behind the Scenes
Get the Picture with director Paul King
the movie is a surreal and almost cartoon-like when we get a glimpse
into Stephen's past, especially how he explains certain moments in his
life but quaint definitely sums this film up perfectly and it will
definitely pull on your heart strings.
