Seriously, skip this and treasure the book.
6 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Tony Hawks, a British comedian, actor and author took a drunken bet one night that he could hitch-hike around the coast of Ireland with a fridge in tow. He did it and wrote a best selling book about his adventure. The book tells of the wonderful array of characters he met on his travels, the places he visited, some good, some bad, and how something so normal as a small fridge managed to become some sort of beacon of hope for humanity. The book, in short, is an often hilarious read that quite possibly ranks as one of the finest human interest stories written in the comedy field.

The film is awful. Containing neither the feel or many of the joyous instances in the book, Hawks' film version is propelled by a heavy reliance on romance and a distinct lack of comedy. Skip it and read the book instead. Tony Hawks I could flipping kill you for letting this dirge come out on tape. 2/10
