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.
