CBBC material?!?
13 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I got the distinct impression all throughout this bizarre production that the odd expletive, use of guns, repeated references to alcohol, and a few suggestive shots of Whitey were all that stood between this and a slot on children's television.

I'd have rated this with a single star if it hadn't been for the fact that I actually did chuckle once or twice, and that various tight-top/crotch shots and wardrobe transitions qualified Whitey for at least a walk-on part in the next Carry On movie. I've given one star per chuckle.

There is a four-letter description for the plot, dialogue, production value, and writing of Phoo Action: CBBC.

Mildly titillating, but out-weighed by the insulting implication that the BBC is spending my license fee on productions aimed at intellectually-underdeveloped adults. There's certainly a little too much bad language for this to be aimed at children who should already be in bed...
