A comedy that was not funny
9 March 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The point of a comedy is for it to be comical and this simply was not. To be honest I found most of the humour childish and in poor taste. None of the stars are comical actors, they are the usual bunch of British b-movie actors who all seem to be in the same films with the same themes.

The only thing that made me laugh was how bad the acting was. I was surprised to Richard E Grant in there but I suppose its proof that the reason has hit us all as I'm guessing he was only in this movie for the cash or as a bet.

There were a few hot chicks in it but overall it was a weak film. No idea why its rated as high as 4.5
