Movie Info

An aspiring British reporter comes to America in search of the scoop that will launch her career, and falls in with a mischievous band of small town thieves who have some serious dirt on their corrupt mayor. Pharisee is the kind of town where nothing ever happens, but upon landing a job at the local newspaper, Betty begins to suspect that Mayor Plumb (Dick Bowland) and his cronies are up to no good. But gathering enough evidence to call them on their crimes won't be easy, and in order to get the truth Betty must seek the assistance of two bumbling thieves, a hooker with a heart of gold, and an ex-Marine hatchet man with a penchant for women's clothing.

Critic Reviews for London Betty

All Critics (2)

Has a hard time deciding on a tone, story, and genre, thus it's definitely not the best [director] Seymour has ever offered up.

Cinema Crazed

An amateur production that has its heart in the right place.

This is an awesome indie flick that needs more attention from movie goers, especially if you enjoy independent films. "London Betty" is a quirky comedy that is sure to put a smile on your face. Betty has moved across the pond to become a real life American reporter, but when her first story assignment turns out to be just another fluff piece she begins to think twice about the move. Discouraged and looking for allies Betty forms an unlikely bond with the neighborhood thieves and together they set out to investigate the town's crooked Mayor. Betty might just get her first real news story, but she'll have to be in cahoots with thieves to get it. *Sponsored Post

From the opening tone of the friendly narrator, London Betty had a feel good running start. The solid cast of characters reminded me of Reno 911, abrupt and witty. The slapstick humor was like a hand in glove with an almost improvisational script never leaving a dull moment in one's attention span. The foundation of the storyline is about 3 best friends, including 2 crooks that go by the name of Billy and Volgo and a hooker named Jess. Along with a complimenting and contemporary selection of rock music, comes the outsider Betty- who has just relocated from (you guessed it) London to a city in America called Pharissee. Her Samsonite consists of high hopes in becoming a Nobel prize winning news reporter via the Pharissee Gazette and her rabbit, Pollack. As Betty begins her hunt for the perfect story to impress new boss Maury at the local paper, she stumbles across the ever so familiar illegal tactics of the town Mayor. Somehow, Pollack the rabbit is stolen not once, but twice by Billy who leads Betty into being an accomplice in his mission to bust Mayor Plum. Billy is an entrepreneur of calamity and mischief ends up falling for Betty, who is really using Billy to get her facts on the scoop. Meanwhile, Volgo falls for Jess, who's days of trick and treating as an escort are short lived. It's almost as if the plot is packed with furnished lines spoken by people who contracted tortes with its overwhelming amount of silly obscenities. There are a handful more of entertaining cohorts to this film from Maverick Entertainment, and everyone gets their 15 minutes of fame in this short, but sweet theatrical circus about turning your life around and taking it over! London Betty will be available OnDemand beginning February 1st and will be available everywhere on DVD February 2nd! Reserve your copy today! Health and Happiness! Janel Rana aka "Discount Diva"
