Film Description
How to Get a Substitute Wife

You will need.....

1 Wife (preferably forgiving and tolerant, if you can't get one then any woman will do)
A large number of unnattached female (preferably but whatever floats your boat) friends with a sense of desperation.
Some witty dry lines.

Ok so basically one day about 7 years ago I was staying round at a friends house while my wife was visiting her parents in Scotland. Now staying round at girls houses is always great because they say things like 'Would you like a cup of tea' and 'Don't worry I'll get it for you'.. Beats subsisitng on half a scotch egg and beer as we do on our own.

And so I came up with the line "Well you can be my substitute wife while my own wife is away.. now for some reason the woman had no objections, you see secretly they like taking care of us useless blokes. Then another chirped in well can I be your second substitute.... women actually volunteering. (please note no sexual favors were forthcoming)

From then on it was easy, women despite their protestations are intensley competitive, one girl I hadn't even met asked to join as she had heard people talking about it. The list grew and grew especially as they got older (tick tick).

Now the rules - The woman at the top of your list will take over should the wife die... has to be real death not just incapacity.... Divorce is a grey area.

If the woman has a Boyfriend you skip to the next one... when you have 27 who needs the hassle. If she has a husband then shes permenently removed.

The effect of this is you have all the people at the top of the list trying to get blokes and all the ones down the bottom trying to scupper their relationships (infighting and bickering).

At a minimum you should expect them to know their current position, be willing to make you tea and listen to your jokes without complaint and pose for an ego boosting photo with all the others.

Anyway there is my rational.... enjoy the movie...

I think this is actually my first five star movie! You've done an amazing job on it, I like it, well done! And I hope you didn't get in too much trouble with the wife(s)...

5-Star: This movie has everything: it's amazing, got voice acting, music, continuity, a plot etc...

I want to give you 6 stars!!! THIS IS THE FUNNIEST MOVIE I'VE SEEN YET!!! Dialogue is spot on, editing and scenes are splendidly done. Not only did I enjoy this flick, but I learned quite a bit (about film making that is). GREAT WORK!

outstanding - can not fault this film
great humour with the voice over and even more humour with the clever idea of comical subtitles....

really really great .....

That was great. The voice acting was excellent and the subtitles left me in stitches.

- Matneee

Bloody brilliant, this is! It's possible some people will take offence, but I thought it was funny.. The only criticism is that I think the subtitles actually detract from it, enough to stop it getting 5 stars. The humour of the dialogue is more than enough to carry the film on it's own:0

First of all : I am definitely going to try it !
The voice over is pretty nice and the lil "my wife tried 9 times for that one" made me laugh so much !
Great movie , i love it, nice work !

That was great! Very, very funny. It sort of reminded me of some Monty Python sketches like "How Not to be Seen", or the opening credits of "Holy Grail". Really funny.

An absolutely briljant movie which got everything! I loved it! Doesn't have a lot of "unnecessery (spelling?)" scenes, that don't tell anything in the story, just pure fun! Well done!

Okay I am a female and I could be offended, but if it wasn't so funny I may be lol! If I had a husband, couldn't I adopt your theory? Mmm get some sexy men and make them my substitue husbands lol! One to wash the dishes, wash my car, rub my feet, and the other to clean the toilet! Your wife must be a saint or she must have her own sub. hubbies when you aren't around lol!

Fan frikkin tastic. The voiceover wasn't great (but it was still good, really clear), but then, that doesn't diminish from the quality of the writing.

Great voices, complemented by the subtitles. It is a very amusing tale, and your introduction embellishes the story perfectly. Technically this was a superb film (and I have had to judge some films) and the music, while not amazing, is solid and works well. The scenes are seamlessly cut together and I particularly like the playing out of the "some men turn to..." thoughts. Very well done.

Nothing really above average. The subtitles were a bit distracting from the story. Voiceovers were good, but not spectacular. Got bored after a couple of minutes, but overall strong effort.

Nice job on this one. Best one on this site I've seen so far. I must say that the whole "zoom in on the boobs and booty" bit has already been used in about 95% of the films on this site, but the rest was surely filled with enough humerous content to give you the 5. Congrats!

Especially once she sees the subtitles.

I'm more a romantic liason kind of guy, than the substitute type, but hell, I'll grant you those dishes do get annoying.

Loved the added subtitles of how many times it took to get the lines right, lol. Maybe you need a substitute voice-actress too!? :)

It made me laugh. That gets 5. Very well done.

I want my own substitute wife. Who would want a sustitute husband that just sits aorund being lazy in front of the tv? You wife should get her own substitute wife and eventually she will realize that she doesn't need you for anything.

Splendid... the comedy was both well written and delivered. This film greatly benefitted from the voice-over dialogue (would have been more "chuckle-worthy" than outright hilarious). Among the best films I've seen on The Movies Online.

I was ready to give this film a three until the subtitles started coming in. Lol, "the wife doesn't know I've added subtitles in yet.". Class line! :D

A good watch - I'm glad that you were not afraid to add those 'traditional role' lines! As much as women dismiss it, common it is! ;)

Posted on November 22, 2005
- Morthane

Dry humor that doesn't deliver - well done choreography and fitting in the voice acting, but no lasting effects. This film hurts from lack of emotion rather than technique or acting.
The groundwork for a GREAT studio is there, all you need is some lines that really hit the spot and a story that connects with the audience.

5 star effort.

Script - 5 Original story, well told and acted.
Music - 5 Good fit for the genre.
Editing - 5 no major flow interuptions. No obvious Jump cuts.
Sound Effects - 5 Minimal, but appropiate for the genre.

Top 10 films I have viewed to date. Good work.

LOL I had quite a grin on my face, when I saw that.
now that s comedy I´d love to see more often around here!

I totaly forgot, that I am actual watching a movie made with "the movies".
No 10 times seen animations. Just the natrual thing, as if I was watching a comical series on the TV. -only the laughs are missing! ;)

Anyways: Great cuts, great voiceovers and nice music....and not to mention the funny lines! ;)

I greatly enjoyed watching this movie. The story is well planned out, the voiceovers are done well (and oh my gosh, females are spoken by females! I thought I was the only one possessi... uhrm ... having the joy of living together with a woman), and are indeed no pain to listen to.

In some of the scenes I would have wished for more efficient cutting, especially in the beginning. Fading in and out for example, or just shortening of overlength scenes. A custom soundtrack (funny jazz or maybe cheeeesy 50s big band) might have added even more to the atmosphere.

This movie is hereby approved by Grumpy Sparrow Studios. Two feathers up.

I think it is every married guys dream to have sub wives, just in case. Great script. The ONLY critisim I have is that the son looks nothing like the dad! The dad looks like a weakling, and the son looks like a drummer for a pop band. : )

"Hilarious. Sharp script with a great comedic mood. Almost as if it's okay to be naughty... Boslet has clearly wrapped the script under her wing and Dave Garcia-Gomez had us all at hello didn't he? A possible great future for Romance and Action roles me thinks. Only complaint is the subtitles are left a little under utilised, none the less, the timing did rock... making this is a great example of a film. An almost perfect Comedy." - Alvin.K

This is actually supreme movie making, at it's finest...! :)

I like the whole substitute wife thing (Dont know what my wife would say though), and maybe it was worth looking into.. :)

As for the voice-over, cutting, and generel movvie making, i cant find a damn thing to crit on.... Damn you!!! :) 5 stars from me!

I thought it was funny in some ways but in terrible taste. It objectifies women in the worst way. I give it three stars because it is well made. Other than that, I wouldn't be surprised if you wife doesn't take flamethrower to your computer. Then again I am not sure how you got someone to marry you.

From Critic's Corner hosts Jeremiah and Dr. Googlestien
Pretty decent message movie. I think this film shows how new wives step in after deaths or unfaithfulness. This movie touched up every spot. The music in the background definently was perfect for this film. Sort of a naughty background music folklore. The voice over was wonderful and all. I'll give this movie three stars only because I didn't see where the comedy was at. It was definently a great message movie though.

"I need to follow this system myself"

Originality: 4 - an interesting idea indeed. I was kind of thrown off at times by the mixing of subtitles and VO. But on a whole this is a near perfect in terms of originality.

Editing: 4 - Very few complaints here, the editing was smooth and the placing of things going on in other places at the same time, or referencing of events was very well done.

Sounds: 4 - The music actually fit very well, the film never felt dark , or cruel, more of a light hearted "What if" sense to it.

Flow: 3 - The subtitles killed the flow at times, I had to pause to look at what it said.

Replayability: 3 - I would recommend it to others, but probably wouldn't watch it more than once myself. But definatley worth a look.

4 out of 5 stars.

A simple yet well put together movie that does what no Hollywood movie could do. poke a little fun at the ladies without the lady having to immediately cut the man`s haed off. Nicely put together without any over-the-top stuff. Nice voiceovers done by all. Not my kind of film really, but I must give it a 4 for being a little different, yet tasteful. (Maybe a little too generous).

Bloody brilliant, this is! It's possible some people will take offence, but I thought it was funny.. The only criticism is that I think the subtitles actually detract from it, enough to stop it getting 5 stars. The humour of the dialogue is more than enough to carry the film on it's own:0
