Funny at parts, but absolutely silly and absurd!
14 April 2007 | by (Porto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

This movie starts to be funny. The first scenes where we see Ben (played by Dean O'Gorman) cheating his girlfriend Emily (Marisa Stott) are very well conceived and are pretty laughable; but then I think it starts to exaggerate too much! The main character, Ben, is a complete idiot! I mean, a guy like this cannot really exist! He's too silly, dumb, stupid and absolutely crazy to be true! What starts to be peculiar, original and pretty funny turns then into stupidity, silliness and absurdity, just because of his fault! He plays with everyone and everything, as all people in the world would appreciate his stupid and childish little games… Grow up dude! Well, to be fair, I must say at least one person appreciates his crazy little games… the equally crazy and extremely mad Chlo (Kate Elliot) – the girl with whom he's cheating his girlfriend!

To sum up, I think this movie is really funny at parts, but it ends up being a pretty childish and silly comedy!
