Storyline

Alfie Singh, accountant turned film producer, has a great idea for a film. It's called Ealing Comedy and it's about an accountant turned film producer called Alfie Singh. Alfie will play himself and his real son, Paul, will play his son in the film. Turned down by all the financiers, Alfie vows to make the film himself. His life with his wife and teenage son and his struggles to finance and make films in the UK are all woven together in a series of mad-cap events, resulting in a very British film.

Just not funny
25 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Left after an hour, just not funny.

A couple of bits made me smile but not even close to a chuckle let alone a laugh.

The acting is very poor too. Considering it has some well know TV people in it.

About 3 of the 20 or so people in the cinema were laughing at the awful and over predicable attempts at jokes but quite a few also left before I did.

Very disappointing, gives British films a bad name.

That's all I have to say really but you need to make ten lines to count as a submission.

And I don't want to waste the time I spent coming up with five.

It's quite annoying really as I almost just threw the review away as I couldn't come up with more.
