Film synopsis: 
<p> <span style="font-family: Times New Roman; font-size: small"> <span style="font-family: Times New Roman; font-size: small"> </span></span> </p> <p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0pt; text-align: justify" class="MsoNormal"> <span style="font-family: Times New Roman; font-size: small">The Frumans of Frumania live in a perfect but shallow world, accessed through an apple on a market stall. In amongst the rotten bunch is Appleby Cox's-Pippin. He is generally dismissed by his fellow Frumans for his inability to be the same as them, and for his love of all things creative. Soon Appleby feels the strain of being an outcast and life at home is no better. </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Times New Roman; font-size: small"> </span> </p> <p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0pt; text-align: justify" class="MsoNormal"> <span style="font-size: small"><span style="font-family: Times New Roman"><span>            </span>Eventually rejected by his hypocritical father, Appleby is forced to start a journey in search of 'being the same', eventually encountering the evil Agent Orange and learning a harsh lesson in what really lies close to the Fruman heart - greed.</span></span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Times New Roman; font-size: small"> </span> </p> <p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0pt; text-align: justify" class="MsoNormal"> <o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:p><span style="font-family: Times New Roman; font-size: small"> </span></o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:p> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Times New Roman; font-size: small"> </span> </p>

Dear Anonymous

Dear Anonymous - thanks for taking the time to Google me once again, I'm quite flattered with your obsession. However, I really think you should get out more. Maybe make some friends,take up a creative writing course, learn to direct/act/work a camera, get some counselling, change your hair, that sort of thing.There's more to life than stalking me.Thanks also for paying to see the film, I'd be interested to know where you actually saw it.I'll also pass your comments on to Phill, I'm sure he'll be devastated, particularly as you can't spell his name.
p.s Nice name 'Anonymous' - kind of suits you.

Review

Not Phil jupitus's best work, in fact surprised he put his name to it!? Please no sequel!
