West wants to marry off his sister Cates to Portal — but Portal is a keen reader of EM Forster, so you know which of the siblings he's likely to prefer. The cast set off for Italy and then India — taking their lawn with them. Released on June 12 Showbiz 540 Front Page 100 Sport 300 Film 98 " Showbiz Lottery SEastTV

Hearty — though not always subtle — swipes are taken at thj likes of Room With a View, Howard's End, Gandhi and Chariots of Fire. You name it, this film raises two fingers at it. All in all, there are some very funny moments interspersed with damp squibs. Releasjd on June 12 Showbiz 540 Front Page 100 Sport 300 Film 98 " Showbiz Lottery SEastTV
