Directed by Mel Smith, Written by Tim Firth (screenplay) and produced by James Gay-Rees.
A rebellious young British bowls player teams with another older and more traditional player to take on the Australian bowls team.
Try as he might, the roguishly handsome Cliff Starkey, just can’t keep out of trouble. In his sleepy home town on the English coast, nothing much inspires him…apart from bowls. Cliff has always preferred to play by his own rules much to the disapproval of the regimented, elderly bowls fraternity. Before long, the bay boy of bowls is turning the sedate and very English pastime upside down with hysterical results.
