So bad it's almost watchable
14 November 1999 | by (Leeds, England) – See all my reviews

Dire British comedy, so pathetic it's almost worth watching as an object lesson in how not to make a film (I've seen better amateur films). Largely wooden cast are baffled by an inept script. The only glimmers of light are some stalwart comedy actors trying hard (but vainly) to inject some grains of humour. Wilfrid Brambell impersonates a Scottish postman, and there's a neat little cameo from Spike Milligan as a tramp fishing in the Serpentine. Fortunately he's near the beginning so you can turn it off once he's said his lines.
