0 out of 10 for this pappy-show! What in the hell is that..?, 29 October 2005
Author: smiley-32 from Luton, England

OK! OK! I must admit, I'm writing this for a friend.. Just one of the 300 people who went to see this stinker. As far as he's concerned.. I was told that this the kind of film that Shane Ritchie should've put his money where his mouth is..

Although it was similar in the reins of Goodnight Sweetheart.. This one was totally diabolical..! The script was awful.. The characters like a hard man's version of the Jelly Babies.. The whole film was mostly set in the jazz room populated by Smarties..

After I was told about it.. I was saying, well what the hell was Malcolm Needs thinking..? For a movie that costs £6million to make.. I would've done the film for a £100K.. rather than blast so much money into it.

I think the biggest problem was trying to get an audience to see this film this pile of rubbish.. But it turned out that audience realised that this is not the kind of film they would spend maybe £5-£10 (I'm talking London cinema-wise) to go and see it.

I've seen better films in my time.. But really if this comes out on DVD. And if it does.. I wonder how many people are going to rent or buy..? For starters, if I got this free from let's say.. Cash Converters.. I'll definitely pass it over to the nearest charity shop. They can sell it for a good price of 1p. 0 out of 10! Totally diabolical!
