Unfunny Toilet humour . What A Shame
20 June 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Now i like Johnny Vegas which is a good start, I also enjoy toilet humour

Such as Young Ones and Bottom etc. This however failed to bring even a

small smile to my face. The story follows Johnny around after his wife

chucks him out (how he got his good looking wife and kid i dont know)

as he attempts to shag anything that moves. Failing normally. I was looking forward to this but found it to be totally boring and a waste

of my time altogether. Unless you are stuck for something to do for 90 mins apart from wash the car then dont bother.....
