disastrous but hilarious
13 March 2003 | by (london) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie at 2.00am in the morning, and was feeling really tired when it begun, but 15 minutes into it i was wide awake and in hysterics, the weird thing was, most of the film was made within a house, so making it watchable, must have been a hard job, but also giving it some laughs as well. All the actors were brilliant, and all had there own quirky ways to portray there characters, but the real laughs came from Natalie Walter who also played the exact same person (i am sure) in the TV comedy Babes in the Wood a few years later. Complete with a really wakey cast this is a really funny film.
