The Best 30 minutes of my week!
5 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

I've never felt compelled to write a review or reply to anything on the net but this is pure genius!

Ben Miller is perfectly cast as a hapless groom to-be, with an incredible knack of constantly digging an ever deeper hole for himself, in the lead up to his impending marriage.

Every week i'd look forward to watch the next cringe worthy installment. It makes a refreshing change to watch a genuinely laugh-out-loud comedy without canned laughter. You'll laugh in all the right places (and sometimes wrong!) Head, shoulders, body and feet above any recent sit-coms. A riotous laugh! Truly fantastic.
