To call Shaun Ellis's film a porno fantasy dressed up as an existential crisis would make it sound more interesting than it is.

An art-college drip named Ben (Sean Biggerstaff) is dumped, gets insomnia and takes a night-shift job at Sainsbury's alongside checkout girl Sharon, played by Emilia Fox (above left), where he develops a trick of putting the world "on pause" and disrobing young women. The comic observation is desperately feeble, unrelieved by a dull voiceover reminiscent of Michael Owen.
