Actually, I loved it.
21 June 2006 | by (Bath, Uk) – See all my reviews

Caught this on late night telly. Wasn't expecting much from on a Wednesday night, at midnight.

However, its not that awful really. A bit cheesy in places, but quite funny, if you wind your sense of humour down a few notches.

The performances were OK, the ending predictable (although I profess to enjoying quite how films reach their obvious conclusions) and while I was expecting them, the cameos were cool as well. I've always been a Stephen Fry fan.

I certainly wouldn't have paid to see it, but in terms of a quiet, late night film, when you've got nothing better to do, its quality entertainment.
