In their mid-twenties, Dylan (Dan Futterman) and Jez (Stuart Townsend) are two orphans who are over qualified and under employed. Dylan is a fast talking Yank. Jez is a tongue-tied technical genius with a bad haircut. Tired of the "rich get richer" syndrome, they decide to exploit it. Their aim is to make a million pounds each and London is their oyster. They use every coupon, enter every free prize draw, and scam anyone who can afford it. But into their lives comes Georgie (Kate Beckinsale) who has her own mission, just as driving, just as inventive, but far more altruistic. She needs money - a lot of money...and in Jez and Dylan she's struck gold!
A very good start, but the plot deteriorates as it goes along, and I can see why one critic wrote that it seems to have been made for the American market, in that they would think that this is what jolly old England is like all the time. It all gets too preposterous.
