Manchild - Released on DVD and VHS 31 March 2003

Manchild is a light-hearted, pacey, politically incorrect comedy drama about four 50-year-old men who spend their days and nights attempting to prove that they are not yet past their prime. Stockbroker Terry, orthodontist James, art dealer Patrick and decking king Gary are friends from schooldays.

Except for Gary, who is still married, there is nothing to stop the boys as they indulge what they believe is their last chance to recapture their youth.

Their efforts to bring back their heady carefree bachelor days mostly make them look absurd. They have the money for the hip clothes, motorbikes and beautiful young girlfriends but these things really are the domain of much younger men. And although they'd never admit it there are worries about health, impotence, ex-wives and children that will not go away.

The VHS and DVD include the whole of series one and the DVD includes scene selection.

Starring Nigel Havers, Anthony Head, Ray Burdis and Don Warrington. Written by Nick Fisher (Footballers' Wives). Directed by David Evans (Fever Pitch).
