Genre: Crime, Romance, Drama, Comedy, Kidnapping, Supernatural, Black Comedy, Surreal, Cult Classic, Thieves, Fantasy

Tagline: A comedy for anyone who's ever been in danger...of falling in love.

Plot: Petulant, rich honeypie Celine and scruffily adorable janitor Robert find themselves on the road to romance after he kidnaps her to avenge his termination at the hands of her callous father. But what they don't realize is that their love is celestially predetermined, as a pair of gun-toting angels gives chase to force the issue. A quixotic and inconsistent Hollywood debut from the production team of director Boyle, writer John Hodge, and producer Andrew MacDonald ("Shallow Grave" and "Trainspotting").
