A charming comedy about four male friends that will try literally anything to save their favorite local pub from closing down. After brainstorming through ideas, the group decides to write a chick lit, or more specifically a 'mummy porn' novel following the huge success of 'Fifty Shades of Grey'. Soon after, the novel gets picked up! Now, the only problem is that the publisher insists that the young woman 'author' does press and publicity. Desperate to keep their involvement a secret, the four guys hire an out of work actress to 'role play' the part of the author. This leads to her becoming the star in the film adaptation of the book and turns the tables on the guys as she is now the one in control - leaving them with the awful prospect of having to secretly churn out sex novels for the foreseeable future.

While the topic was humorous, the execution was not. The film was more of a light drama, than the comedy it should have been. It fell short of being a chick-flick even though there was a love interest. The characters were not fully developed. You can not say "Amazon" in an independent book store. Should have been funnier with that cast. A missed opportunity.
Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity.
One’s time would be better spent just looking for other movies to watch. This one’s humor landed like a wet fart.
