“The Short and Curlies” is a bit weird- doesn’t really seem to have a plot (a normal device for Mike Leigh) but just watching David be a nerd with “verbal diarrhoea” (as Leigh calls it on the commentary) is funny. He tells bad jokes and mainly isn’t serious but hey, he makes a very cute nerd.
I love the bit when he buys condoms and then he states “Extra large” and buys them and says “that’s me”. All I could think of “If only. If he is, Anna is a very lucky girl” LOL)
Anyway here are some pictures I capped from the DVD. These are MY caps, not from any of the two main David Thewlis fan sites out there.
“Extra Large- that’s me!” LOL
Awwww sleeping David= cuteness
And now for possibly my favourite scene in the whole production:
