Appalled and horrified by the death of their best friend, three middleclass, not-quite-middleaged family men explode and ricochet off on a marathon New York-to-London binge.

Ben Gazzara Peter Falk John Cassavetes Jenny Runacre Jenny Lee Wright Noelle Kao

Appalled and horrified by the death of their best friend, three middleclass, not-quite-middleaged family men explode and ricochet off on a marathon New York-to-London binge.

Director-writer-actor John Cassavetes, Ben Gazzara and Peter Falk are the ‘husbands’, who, in the face of death, revert to drunken, giggling, horseplaying adolescence, and, with a stunningly-talented supporting cast, create and improvise a memorably touching, human and very funny film.

Fleeing from the beer foam and grime of a lower New York bar in a sudden panicked flight to London, Cassavetes, Falk and Gazzara are three of the uncoolest married men to ever go on the make.

In a superb cast, Jenny Runacre, a tall lovely blonde English girl gives a touching performance as Cassavetes’ neurotic pick-up.
