Cruise of the Gods (DVD)
Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon star in a surreal comedy drama. The faded star of a 1980s cult TV sci-fi show now works as a hotel porter. He finds himself offered a chance to resurrect his glory days.
"A surreal masterpiece!" – Daily Express
Andy Van Allen, former hero of a cult 1980s futuristic TV show is now a washed-up, bitter failure of a hotel porter, unlike his co-star, Nick Lee, who went on to fame and fortune in the USA.
Out of the blue, Andy receives an unusual offer: the show’s fan club has organised a ‘celebrity cruise’ and wants Andy to attend as the principal celebrity. Not only would this be the first holiday Andy’s had for years, but they’re offering serious money into the bargain.
Once aboard, however, the paradise cruise is far from plain sailing. The combination of Andy’s cynicism and his fans’ adoration is bad enough, but unbeknown to him the cruise is set on a collision course with his mega-successful former co-star, Lee.
With his world spinning out of control, can Andy finally get a grip, and become a true hero for his people?
