What happens in this movie caught me completely off guard, and was a deranged surprise. Therefore, I’m not going to write anything in this review that will give away the twist. That makes it harder for me to write this thing, but so it goes. This is a funny, dark and twisted road comedy that has Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz) as one of its executive producers. Steve Oram and Alice Lowe star as Chris and Tina, a couple going on their first holiday together. They pack up an RV, much to the chagrin of Alice’s mom, and head out on a tour of England. What follows, I will not divulge. I will just say the movie amounts to one of the summer’s coolest surprises. Oram and Lowe are excellent, giving us the two best RV traveling characters since Albert Brooks and Julie Hagerty in Lost In America. It’s a deranged delight, and well worth your time.
