Hilarious spoof on the Building Industry in the UK at the time
21 April 2002 | by (Perth, Western Australia) – See all my reviews

I recall going to see this when it came out as I took a girl I had been trying to date for some time along with me. Sadly I laughed so much she never went out with me again. I was a Carpenter at the time working on a building site in Ruislip which looked very much like the one in the movie so it was even more amusing. It is full of hilarious moments some of which take some time to pan out. An example is when the Gas board come along and dig up the trenches to load gas piping. Some time later the Electricity board come along and dig in the same hole. Even though you know what is going to happen ( a big bang) it is even funnier when it does. I would love to get this on Video. It ranks along side films such as The Plank as one of those low budget gems that only the Brits seems to make. Sadly now some of the so called comedies that we are supposed to laugh at probably have a bigger budget for the opening credits than this little gem cost to make.
