Tunnel of Love (2004 TV Movie)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
There were fewer funny moments than in a single Benny Hill or Paul Hogan show, and you can't get much direr than that. As I watched with increasing boredom, I wondered why anyone had bothered to make such a tedious film. If, as the previous reviewer speculated, this was a pilot for a possible series, thank goodness the plug was pulled.
You'll have more fun snoozing or washing dishes than watching this.
The main plot is fine .... fairground going broke .... with lots of opportunity for a number of episodes as the lad gets out of trouble in Arthur Daley style. But somewhere along the line it seems to get lost in a number of improbable sub-plots.
The character of his oversexed oppo who attempts to trail one of the many folks who are suing the fairground is beyond belief.
Given a little more serious treatment and confined to one major plot line this movie had potential both in its own right and as a forerunner of a series.
As it is .... it fails.
