    great! Really enjoyed it and didn't find it too long at all. Really appreciated the non verbal device and really added to the punch at the end with the bleeped out swearing!!

    I loved this. Agree with some of the other comments here about it being a bit long in places - also I actually found the romance part of the story genuinely engaging and I'd have been happy without a punch line ending... but yeah, it made me laugh out loud on my own in a room so for that I have to doff my cap to you.

    I didnt expect to like it but its a grower, became very very funny and the handling of the nazz character especially in the cuts and use of sounds was really tightly done.
    i dont agree nazz shoudl be the snogger - would have made a tighter arc but undermined how youd built him up, but i do agree it could lose a couple minutes. Cracking.

    Great job! I really liked the set up. As an American the phone tones made me laugh repeatedly. Like one other person said if it ain't broken don't fix it.

    Very artistic. can't wit to see your next film. Check out my feature BLANK when you have the time.

    Very simple and very effective. I wish that romanticism would be successful as well but it is not fashionable.

    Thanks a lot for your comments - much appreciated. Interestingly I did make a shorter 5 minute cut which possibly does work better. Should have posted that one instead!

    I liked it. It was really well-shot and nice-looking, although I agree it could be a bit shorter.

    But make it shorter with his best mate snogging her!
