Can Always Re-Use The Tape To Record Something Else!
21 June 2002 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

I got this tape as part of a group of videos and, being totally unfamiliar with Roy "Chubby" Brown, viewed it with low expectations. My conclusion was that the video was not a loss because I could still use the tape to record something else!

Intellectually you could say this movie derives from three sources. Ever since the days of British "quota quickies" there has been a history of comic divide between southern and northern England. In the more elegant south there was drawing room comedy (i.e. Aldwych farces) and in the working man's north there was low brow humor (i.e. George Formby). North American's may have a perception that a "British comedy" is a "British comedy" but the truth is that the northerners seldom played London or the south. The humor and the accents, much like Roy"Chubby" Brown's, didn't "travel". The second source is the show business celebrity playing "himself" (i.e. Jack Benny) as the lead in a movie. Apparently Mr. Brown's stand-up comedy routines, some of which is shown in the movie, are based on sexist and derogatory "humor". This is strictly low brow, with women as the butt of all jokes and the topics mainly derived from female bodily functions. Others, including myself, will be equally offended by the fact that the comedy is simply moronic (a conclusion also supported by the fact that every second word is F***). Roy "Chubby" Brown turns his image into the movie by playing himself, a comic who offends women. The third source is the trend towards British, and increasingly American, "lads" magazines (i.e Maxim, Stuff etc). This is the Roy "Chubby" Brown audience, 19 year old beer drinkers.

The plot is limited. Comedian Brown, noted for his sexist routines, is kidnaped by female aliens who place him on trial for his "crime" against women. Naturally they convict him and sentence him to have babies. That's the whole plot! Needless to say the movie was written by Mr. Brown and really just consists of set-ups for him to turn to the camera and deliver a "joke". The movie seemed endless despite the fact that it was only 79 minutes. His fellow "actors" contribute nothing. Sara Stockbridge, who plays the alien pursuing Brown is yet another model "posing" through her "performance". Shirley Anne Field, playing the head of the aliens, apparently shot her scenes separately (she only shows up on a screen). Smart girl! Sue Lloyd plays the alien judge, no acting required. Finally, I saw Roger Lloyd-Pack in a movie twenty years previous to this (Confessions Of a Sex Maniac) and noted that he had only one facial expression. All I can say is that twenty years later he still has it!

Technical credits are moderate but many people will have to strain to understand Brown's accent.

"Lads" may enjoy this movie, feminists will be offended and the rest of us left to wonder how this ever got made.
