Dreadful
14 September 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I spent some time finding a copy of this movie, having enjoyed the original movie quite a bit. The original is crass and rude but humorous and rather charming, but this sequel is really dreadful. It gets two points for its total lack of political correctness, noting that something like 90% of this movie would be cut these days due to the racist, ethnic and sexist slurs in it. Beyond that, it's just left with dreadful acting and an unintelligible plot. How on earth they got people like Donald Pleasance and John Le Mesurier into this is beyond me. Its a movie I waited some time to see, but having seen it, its unlikely it will ever be drawn out of the CD drawer again.
