I adore this film. I rented it expected an adult Kevin and Perry, and was shocked by the themes and humanity this film serves you. The acting is first rate to the extent that you can't imagine anyone else playing any of the major characters. Kaye is nothing short of a revelation, with no hint of this ability beforehand, playing dennis pennis!
Then there is the dialogue. There are so many quotes that you take from this film that years later you and friends will still be talking to each other with them.
All in all a truly memorable heartwarming experience that is by turns shocking, hilarious, poignant, sickening and marvellous. You'll never look at a badger the same way..........
