Appalling nonsense
27 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Yes, it's Emma Thompson and her comedy chums. This really was "comedy" as white-knuckle ride into hell. If the sketches didn't kill you, how about the "dance" routines? I'm not making this up - there really were dance routines. All in all, a truly atrocious and embarrassing mess.
