A Low Budget Triumph!
1 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

I've just been reading some of these comments, and I have to totally disagree with many of them. Many people are only expecting these trashy American-style gross-out comedies which are rife at the moment. Clearly many of us have forgotten the original British humour! Sure the film is not a visual masterpiece, but what can one expect from a film to is one of the lowest budget to ever get a nationwide cinematic release! If you are going to watch it, just don't look for it's faults and be critical, enjoy it for what it is, a throw back to those feel-good comedies that we all loved, with a bit of drama thrown in.

The acting is not dire, as some may suggest, with Ghir and Mcgowan sharing a gloriously funny scene together. As well as seeing some of Britain's most loved talents, it is wonderful to see some fresh faces. The musical score is also beautifully put together by Mr. Mirza.

So am giving this a high rating for what it is, a low budget comedy which punches well above it's weight and I truly recommend it to someone who watches films from all over the world, not just those who expect every film to be like those main-streamers out there.

A truly British feel-good laugh!
