Movie Summary
Telecast on American cable television as Sweet Revenge, this wickedly lack comedy was produced for British TV under the title The Revengers Comedies, which was also the name of the Alan Ayckbourn play collection upon which it was based. Late one night on London Bridge, two potential suicides meet. Henry Bell (Sam Neill) is a midlevel executive who has been unfairly fired by his office rival; Karen Knightly (Helena Bonham Carter) is a nutty heiress whose boyfriend has jilted her in favor of a bitchy American beauty. Forsaking their plans to kill themselves, Henry and Karen go the Strangers on a Train route by agreeing to swap revenges: Karen will dispose of Henrys enemy, Bruce Tick (Steve Coogan), while Henry will destroy Karens bÍte noire, Imogen Saxton-Billing (Kristin Scott Thomas). A U.S./U.K./French co-production, Sweet Revenge made its official debut over Americas Showtime network on September 24, 2000. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
