I wasn't expecting much from this movie. To be honest, I just wanted to see Saunders and Edmondson together on screen. I was surprised to see how good this movie turned out to be. The plot is engaging and it leaves the viewer wondering was Dennis telling the truth or not. Saunders, Edmondson and Richardson were very good at portraying the odd trio and it was nice to see Ade and Jennifer in a more serious role than those in their usual repertoire. All three of them were very sweet, especially Ade as a naive "supergrass". This comedy is very different (in plot as well as style) from other works of my favorite married couple of comedians, but that is what makes this movie so special and original; at least to me. People who aren't fans maybe won't like this flick. There's nothing groundbreaking about it and it's humor is much more subtle than "Ab Fab" or "Bottom" but nevertheless, it made me laugh a lot. I'm already looking forward to seeing it again with my sister (who is also a fan of Saunders).
