Synopsis by Mark Deming
Clean living giveth, and a crazed party taketh away in this broad comedy from Great Britain. Jason Mouseley (Luke de Woolfson) is the son of Barry "Blaze" Mouseley (Phil Cornwell), a wild-living British rock star who passed on a few years back. Imaging that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, Barry's family hatched a plan to encourage his son to live a cleaner and more orderly life. Jason will inherit his late father's mansion and fortune on his 18th birthday, but only under certain conditions -- Jason must be holding down a responsible job, have a steady girlfriend, be getting along with his mother Lorraine (Morwenna Banks), be kind to her dog, and not attend wild parties. Jason is doing his best to obey the terms of his father's will, but his close friend Rob (Simon Lowe) has other ideas, and one weekend while Lorraine is away Rob throws the party to end all parties at the Mouseley estate; within a matter of hours, all of Jason's hard work and resolve has fallen by the wayside. Large was the first feature film from director Justin Edgar; it was adapted from a short subject Edgar directed, Larging It.
