15 minutes of fat jokes
28 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

Set by the beach, this thing has a free and lighthearted air. Billy Bevan visits the beach club for drinks and pool, and while it starts of charming enough, it quickly descends into 15 minutes of fat jokes, as Bevan, who doesn't exactly have the most athletic build himself, finds various ways to make fun of the obese husband of an old flame. If you're into fat jokes then you might like it, but I only laughed once - when Bevan's pants catch fire and to put it out, they roll him up in a rug and throw it in the pool. Being in the rug and not being able to see what is going on around him, Bevan yells out, 'Call the plumbers, the place has flooded!' When that's the best joke you know things are light on.

Oh yeah, and loads of beautiful women stand around in the background of every shot doing not much. I guess they were pulling any trick they could to try and prop it up.
