Very funny
18 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I laughed from the very beginning right through to the end. It's really nice to see that Britain has still got comedy and we are not always stuck with patronising American humour. (Even though there is an American in this - or is it just an accent?) There are some really cringey moments - but they are hilarious and at some points I actually felt bad for laughing, but you know what, if it makes you laugh - laugh.

This film is gonna stir things up a bit, and good - it's about time we were allowed to laugh at what we want and not let others dictate what we are and aren't allowed to find funny. I watched this as a family with my husband and 2 sons - we all loved it (even if I felt a bit awkward with them at times) and were all laughing and still spoke about it for days after.
