The interior in the next shot however is filmed in a much larger aircraft with 6 seats across (the Q400 has 4 across) and while he is having his panic attack Harry refers to the oxygen masks in the safety briefing which the Q400 doesn't have.

Brief chuckles but falls way short of peep show and 'mildly' entertaining
20 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've just got back from seeing Mithcell and Webb's new 'out of this world, hilarious' movie and I have to say I'm more than disappointed.

Firstly, the format is very tepid, with the old 'two mates fall out and then compete against each other before coming together to succeed in the end'...reminds me quite of a Will Ferrell film. Its predictable down to a tee and doesn't drawn you in at all.

Its fair to say there are no 'laff-out-loud' moments at all, with the biggest cheer (apart from the one in my head when the credits started) coming from the sight of a 'stooge' practising his fake laugh and trip. Sums it up really....

Sure, Mitchell and Webb work well together and give the film a little extra (god help us if they hadn't been in it) but overall, considering this was written by the same team as the great Peep Show, this is very poor with very little to shout about.....

Stick to telly guys!
