Mark and Jez are a couple of twenty-something roommates who have nothing in common - except for the fact that their lives are anything but normal. Mayhem ensues as the pair strive to cope with day-to-day life.
BBC comedy series parodying the works of Charles Dickens and heavily influenced by a similar, long-running radio series. A respectable shopkeeper, Jedrington Secret-Past, (unsurprisingly) discovers that he has a secret past.
The idea of Harry making a Pros and Cons list about his girlfriend and being found out is inspired by an episode of Friends where Ross makes a Pros and Cons list about Rachel and is found out. See more »
When Harry Kane is flying back to London from Jersey the aircraft on the runway is a Flybe Dash 8 Q400 which does fly that route. 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.

Passes the time, but don;t expect laughs-a-plenty.
Mitchell & Webb have done some very funny material in the past. This
film is, at best, mildly amusing.
The premise is amusing, in a black comedy way.
The characters are amusing, occasionally.
The script is amusing, in places.
Individually all of the contributors are capable of so much more and it
is disappointing to end up with a film that aspires to be funny but
falls short in so many ways. It simply fails to sustain any interest.
Much of the humour is hackneyed and its predictability takes away so
much of the punch that you find yourself hunting for humour that
ultimately is not there to find.
Overall the best I can bring myself to recommend is if this comes round
on TV and you have little else to do on a rainy day give it a try.
