A Chocolate Orange  (1995)

Alternative Titles: Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, No Chocolate Please We're British!

Genre: Horror

Plot:
The tale of a young man's passion for chocolate, Beethoven and ultraviolence. After an armed chocolate raid down at the local Kwik Save, Terry Allgold is selected for an experimental treatment where constant exposure to films of Dawn French eating mounds of chocolate oranges gives him a horrific aversion to chocolate. The merest whiff of chocolate causes him to vomit copiously while trying to sing "The Lord Is My Shepherd" in Welsh.

Starring: Mark Addy, Ray Winstone, Dawn French and Lulu.

Quotes:
Sharon: "It's not Terry's, it's mine."

Most Helpful User Review:
Controversial. Famously removed from distribution by its director after a vicious backlash from Cadburys and Nestle in the British press.
