A bit of Tom Jones

Went down to Chapter Arts tonight to see A bit of Tom Jones. Thoroughly enjoyed

It is a low budget (£100,00) film made in Tredegar (south wales) and was originally only intended to be shown in Wales, but i understand there are a handfull of cinemas over the bridge now showing it (Bristol, Manchester and Sheppards Bush). I reccomend you get along if you have a chance.

The basic plot is a guy buys Tom Jones cock in a pub and spends the rest of the film trying to sell it to rich perverts that collect celebrity body parts. It is a cross between twin town, sattelite city and a carry on movie. On times the plot is - well - just plain silly, but there are a considerable number of scenes that produce all out belly laughs. I can't remember the last time i laughed out loud so much in the cinema.

The mixture of familiar (to me) locations and valley humour make it quite unique and will be of special interest to valleys bods; although anyone with a wicked sense of humour will enjoy
