Painfully unfunny television
29 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This program just crosses some many lines of common decency. It is insult, crass and crude and just not funny. The idea is to make fun of celebrates and mock them is nothing new. It is meant to be a parody/satire, but those sort of programs tend to honour the people and there careers. This does not do that. A good example of this is the episode about Tom Cruise. He should have been a easy target because of his Scientology beliefs, he relationship with Katie Holmes and moments like his rants on psychology and jumping the couch. However this program is just insulting to Cruise and other characters. They make out that during the filming of Risky Business that Cruise was soiling himself during the scene when he was dancing in his underwear. They portray Nicole Kidman as someone who didn't care about Cruise and that she was just wanting to marry him for money and to get out of Australia. They make out that Stanley Kubrick just filmed Eyes Wide Shut just so he could masturbate during the sex scenes which is a real low point for me. The list just goes on and on. This is a program that shouldn't be made and I'm surprised some people haven't filed legal action against the making of the program. Just don't want this program and it should die!
