Flattered to deceive
3 February 2000 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I have to admit I was disappointed with this movie. One or two scenes were screamingly funny (the barbie scene, for example) but overall I felt this to be just a couple of great scenes bolted together by a very weak plot. Warren Mitchell's Glasgow accent was terrible (and pointless - it added nothing to either the plot or the humour of the film). Without Mitchell however, this movie would be completely devoid of any interest at all. One for the Warren Mitchell completist, perhaps. 2 marks.
