Body Work

Movie Summary

Director:
Gareth Rhys Jones
Released:
1999
Rating:
R

Body Work is the tale of a repressed, uptight corporate man who, in the throes of a mid-life crisis, withdraws every penny of his savings to buy a Jaguar. Virgil Guppy (Hans Matheson) has had enough of his crappy job and desperately wants to improve his station in life. He has the apartment, the clothes, the girl and now he wants the car. The beautiful car needs a little attention, but with such low mileage it's a steal. That is, until the engine dies just four miles into his drive home. The mild-mannered Virgil tries to reason with the dealer for a refund but is refused. That's not the end of his problems; there's a dead prostitute in the trunk and Virgil is arrested for her murder. On the run from the law, broke and desperate, Virgil teams up with Tiffany Shades (Charlotte Coleman), a sexy, saucy thief who makes him realize he's been framed by the scheming car dealer. With Tiffany Shades by his side, Virgil sets out to clear his name and get his money back.
