11 June 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

What could possibly have prompted John Gielgud to appear in this abomination. I have a hard time believing it was for the money. Talk about a blemish on ones career. And Robert Hays was the same character in this movie as he was in "Airplane" which was a really funny movie.

This film is idiotic, humorless, the acting is atrocious and I have a hard time believing it was a "release" rather than an "escape." The only reason I gave it a 3 rating is because there are some nice shots of London, which is one of my favorite cities.

I strongly recommend that you curl up with a bad book rather than view this piece of tripe masquerading as movie.
