I originally watched this movie because a friend suggested it to me. He said it's the Citizen Kane of prawn movies. As a prawn enthusiast how could I say no? I love prawn. prawn-kabobs, prawn creole, prawn gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. Pineapple prawn, lemon prawn, coconut prawn, pepper prawn, prawn soup, prawn stew, prawn salad, prawn and potatoes, prawn burger, prawn sandwich. You just can't go wrong.
So it started off well enough with a lovely animated sequence about prawns but it was all downhill from there. After that it's nothing but dry British "humor." I put it in quotes because it's not funny. Oh sorry, what I meant to say was humour. Too much god awful RAF banter. "Top hole. Bally Jerry pranged his kite right in the how's your father. Hairy blighter, dicky-birdied, feathered back on his Sammy, took a waspy, flipped over on his Betty Harper's and caught his can in the Bertie." How could anybody find this funny?
5/10, but only because of the brilliant opening credits.
