First part sleeper with Second part racer
5 November 2002 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

First part is a somewhat "sleeper" interpretation of the original legendary story. Had to remind myself to keep watching - although all paid off and switched to a balmy rapid pace in the 2nd part, where you have to wake up and keep alert to catch all of the jokes and plays which feast on the UK / middle-eastern switch location theme. Very funny for anyone with knowledge of people from either of these places.
