  • Overview
  • Details
London advertising executive Dennis Bagley (Richard E. Grant) seems to have it all: a big house, a lovely wife (Rachel Ward) and a flourishing career. But when he hits a dry spell and can't come up with a campaign for a new pimple cream, a very unusual boil appears on his shoulder. One day, the boil begins to talk -- but Bagley's the only one who can hear it. Bruce Robinson directs this biting satire that lampoons the world of advertising.
