Sammy and Rosie Get Laid is a big step onward from Hanif k J Kureishi and Stephen Frear’s earlier film My Beautiful Laundrette. The later film again uses comedy and the edge between social realism and surrealism to explore contradictions between and within race, class, gender and sexuality, and is both more complex and more selfconscious than its predecessor.
