great fun film
5 February 2012 | by (england) – See all my reviews

i love this film, i can watch it over and over, from the first scene, some of it is gross, but i like that, its crude, lewd, and rude, and at times very kinky. The characters are very British, i have friends like them, i maybe be one of them. its a simple story of working class men at work, trying to have sex with women, just like American pie,only with British humor. i never understand people who don't like crude humor watching films based on it. id say if you like 'bottom' or 'the young ones' or even' the Americna pie trilogy' then you will love this. just don't watch it with you maiden aunt

ten stars from me
