worst film i have ever seen
19 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have never written anything on the internet before but i just cant help myself. I saw this film last night and I was stunned at how poor it was. you that feeling that someones pulling your leg and your reaction is being filmed for utube or something. My wife though the beginning was a typical advert for orange or something and the real film would start soon. It is a truly awful film we sat at the front and didn't realise till the end that most of the audience had walked out. with the title ealing you thought you were in for true British quality but alas NO! the quality of the film is poor like some copy you got of a dodgy car boot. the acting was dire. who sat at the screening of this and said OK we,ll put it out. This does British film no favours at all. You could use it as a party game and see who lasts the longest i guess. Awful truly awful......
