Given the all star comedy cast you walk into the cinema with high hopes (generally not a good idea for a film), but you are confronted with very few moments of actual comedy compared to the majority of lame jokes in the film. Very few films maintain a good level of comedy throughout the film and this is no exception as the comedy was very spaced out and produced a giggle at best.
I think this film could have been very well made and the acting could have been better, most actors are good at one kind of acting in a specific area and the characters seemed to show it as everyone looked as though they were out of their comfort zone (apart from Richard Ayoade who seemed to really get along with his character).
All in all I believe that if you were looking forward for this film wait for the DVD otherwise it isn't really worth watching.
