An abysmal film which links an insufferable Robert Carlyle with Samuel 'Doesn't care what role it is' L. Jackson in a plotless, actionless, suspenseless romp through the ghettos of the north of England. Even the 'eye candy' is sub par as Emily Mortimer fails to portray the standard femme fatale role which she's assigned.

Elmo McElroy (Jackson) is a streetwise American master chemist who heads to England to sell his special new formula - a powerful, blue concoction guaranteed to take you to 'the 51st state.' McElroy's new product delivers a feeling 51 times more powerful than any thrill, any pleasure, any high in history. But his plans for a quick, profitable score go comically awry when he gets stuck in Liverpool with an unlikely escort (Carlyle) and his ex-girlfriend (Mortimer) and becomes entangled in a bizarre web of double-dealing and double-crosses.
