Sick Note (2017)

It’s the laugh-out-loud story of Daniel Glass (Grint), a compulsive liar who is stuck in a failing relationship and a dead-end job in which he is under the thumb of his irrepressible boss Kenny West (Johnson). Then, just when he thinks things couldn’t get any worse, he’s diagnosed with esophageal cancer. However, when his diagnosis encourages those around him to treat him differently, he finds a new lust for life. When it becomes apparent that he was misdiagnosed by Dr Glennis (Frost), one of the most incompetent oncologists on Earth, he must choose whether to come clean and return to his old rubbish life or to go on pretending to be ill. He plumps for the latter, but quickly finds that he and Dr Glennis are forced to spend every waking minute trying to stop the truth from getting out.
