The West Wittering Affair
This is a bit of a strange one. The West Wittering Affair claims to be a sex comedy. However, throughout the entire film, I only laughed once. And this is coming from the person that normally laughs when nobody else does. So this was definitely not what I was expecting. I wouldn’t say it was bad, exactly. Just really odd.
This is the story of four oddball characters, who after a very freaky weekend find their lives changed forever. Two best friends drift apart as a consequence of sleeping with the same man, but their lives are still tied together in the strangest ways. The West Wittering Affair begins and ends with the same four main characters, but by the end of the tale they are greatly changed.
I think this is one of those films that takes a person with a certain sense of humour to enjoy it. And I clearly don’t have it, because as I said, I laughed just the once, and it was probably at the wrong time too! This should be quite a deep film considering the subject matter, but I just thought it was somewhat ludicrous and doubt very much I’d bother watching it again!
I wouldn’t bother with this bed-hopping Britflick if I were you.
