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.
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.

Yes, very good, thankyou.
You know, there's no technique to any of that. He just takes the pain. Sick bastard.

Brief chuckles but falls way short of peep show and 'mildly' entertaining
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!
