One Night in Istanbul

SHARE

(2014) ★½

Sky Movies Premiere: PREMIERE Friday 25 September, 8.15am and 6.15pm

Strapped for cash, Liverpool cabbies Steven Waddington and Paul Barber use local loan shark Mark Womack to finance a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Turkey – to see their beloved Reds face Milan in the 2005 Champions League final. Which was high drama, as I recall. Adapted from a 2009 stage play, this is low farce.

With ticket touts and Turkish hoodlums, a sexy chambermaid and a fence too camp for Are You Being Served? Funny foreigners, basically. Waddington, in dimwit Parole Officer mode, is gamely supported by the likeable Liverpool-born Barber, a professional screen Scouser even before appearing in Alan Bleasdale’s Boys From the Blackstuff back in 1982.
