Pure Rubbish
15 September 2001 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This has to rate as one of the worst films I have ever had the misfortune to sit through and on which to waste £5. From the trailers it looked to be quite an amusing comedy, but in reality it's 90 minutes of pure hell. I laughed once, and that was at a rather poor joke of someone vomiting on someone else.

The talents of Lee Evans and Kathy Burke were totally wasted on this second rate drivel. It just wasn't funny.
