Plane funny !
6 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My mate and I saw this film on a plane and were laughing so hard the stewardess asked us to be a bit more quite as we were disturbing the other people on the flight ! It is indeed a 'British Gem' ! Great performances from both Brydon and Coogan. It gives a far too close-to-the-knuckle insight into the mind-set of sci-fi fans and the stars stalked by them. Anyone who has ever been to a sci-fi convention will enjoy this immensely ( unless of course they take offence ! ) This film certainly deserves to be far better known than it is, as it ranks amongst the best of British comedy. I would encourage anyone who enjoyed The Parole Officer or even Shaun of the Dead to take the time to watch it.
