There Is A Reason There Is Only One
19 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Imagine if you took a cartoon and put it in the "real world." You know how awkward that is?

That's what it felt like watching this thing. It's really bad. The hammy schtick and jokes, which work brilliant in three camera is a disaster here. Mostly because a lot of their jokes work in 2- shots. The cut to reaction seems so weird in a single camera. I see that it's trying to be some type of Cary Grant American in Europe comedy feel, but it just didn't fit. They could've named it "Monty Python Meets The Keatons."

What makes this movie a shame, isn't that the material is so blatantly ripped from their own sit- com, it's that you expect these things at the END of a series run, not at the beginning.

One last thing, if you're determined to watch it, ask yourself this "What the hell is Jennifer doing the entire time?" If you can find a purpose for her being their (story/plot wise) please tell me.
