This is definitely one of the worst movies I have ever seen. OK They spell potato with an 'e' and that bugged me from the off, but even ignoring that, the performances, script and direction are so below par, I would not have been surprised if this had been a drama school production. However, if the actors and director were to submit this, they would fail and have to resit the examination. It is to be hoped they don't try again.

Not even funny when it's not supposed to be, just absolutely woeful. A romcom devoid of romance, absent of any comedy.

Why is this not in the bottom 100 films?
