This was one of the first films i ever rented when my family first bought a VCR & 21 years later i still think its one of the funniest British comedies ever!most of the humour will be lost on our American cousins as it is VERY British!(It also helps if you were a teen at this time.Fantastic soundtrack also!Lots of familiar TV faces included(anyone remember Brush Strokes!).Daniel Peacock is brilliant as the hapless Toby,Especially dancing to Gene Genie!This film is so quotable too (Easily as many repeatable lines as say,Pulp Fiction).Not to everyones taste but worth a nostalgic look!
p.s Can you smell horses?
