When his one piece of property, his boat, is struck by lightning and destroyed he is denied insurance money because it was 'an act of God'.

STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs
Having been held back for two years,Billy Connelly's 'latest' is a high concept comedy,although not entirely believable in execution.As neither,sadly,for the most part,are the contrieved gags,as see through as tracing paper and as a result,not particularly funny.The pace is a problem too,often slumberous and sleep inducing and the movie certainly feels overlong.The film actually ends up working better as a drama than a comedy,and what's on offer is certainly rather enthralling.It's just,we payed for laughs.***
