Interesting Premise Let Down by Unintersting Stories
18 February 2012 | by (london) – See all my reviews

The basic problem with this film is that none of the stories surrounding the recalled extras is either funny or of much interest.Sid James tries hard with his story but it is just very unfunny.The film is littered with well known faces trying to do their best with poor material.Unfortunately they all fail.By the way look for the scene with the little girl and her lollypop.When she is first seen it is green.then when she goes back towards her bedroom it is yellow.then when she turns around in the next scene it is green again.The film is that lacklustre that this is the only matter worthy of note.The colour is rather strange and looks rather unreal at times.
