Storyline

Having murdered the proprietor of the local curry house for forgetting to send him a Christmas card, Donald is looking forward to his regular meeting with a local actress, a Julie Andrews lookalike with unusual sexual habits. As the appointed hour approaches, however, his flat is taken over by skinhead evangalists ("Chriskins"), a Latino lounge singer, Donald's overbearing cousin, a porn star, and a man with a huge Afro who claims to be Jesus Christ.

Boringly tiresome
26 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was tempted to walk out after half an hour when it was clear that this film was rubbish but stayed to see if it could get worse - it did.

Donald is a loser living an isolated life in his apartment. He has killed the manager of his local Indian restaurant, waits for a visit from a prostitute and has his apartment invaded by skinhead evangelists, someone claiming to be Jesus, and other characters who also add nothing to a film that already has nothing.

The film appears to be trying to be wacky, outrageous and shocking. However, it is nothing more than tiresome. It is irreverent without being iconoclastic, rude without being scandalous and insulting without being challenging. I'm tempted to say the film was trying too hard but I conclude that it didn't try at all.
