I'm a Poet and I Know It!! CONTAINS SPOILERS
27 September 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Late at night, a film reviewer-In the absence of anything newer-Watched an old film on the TV-It was called Murder One, on ITV.

It starred Shari Belafonte (daughter of Harry)-She was going out with a man she wanted to marry-But he was a private dick investigating a killing-And to settle down he wasn't exactly willing

It also had Cleavon Little of 'Blazing Saddles' fame-Sorry? You have never even heard of that name?-SHAME ON YOU! He is a really big star-Why would he feature in something below-par?

As twenty minutes went by without a care-Our critic started to notice the actresses hair-It was all puffed up and starched beyond belief-He bet that those do's caused the stylist some grief!

An hour had elapsed, a body was found in a bath-But all the watcher could do is sit back and laugh-He'd seen pantomimes that were acted better than this-It was all he could do to not take the p*ss

The murderer was obvious from the start-It was the dick's ex, a stupid old tart-Her new boyfriend was cheating on her, so she drowned him-But it took her ages to be caught, thanks to Mr Dim.

When it was over I stared at the screen-That damn insomnia can be so very mean-Next time, rather than sit through crap-I'll hit my head with a mallet.. well, just a tap.

... Oh, and 2/10
