Epic!
8 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I actually got bought this film as a joke! (my flatmate thinking he was funny - think about the title) so I went into it without knowing a thing. I thought it was MAD funny and I actually found myself caring about the lead, James, in his plight to win over the girl of his dreams. (maybe I am a loser after all!) By far my favourite character was the physiatrist who pops up throughout which leads to a BRILLIANT twist at the end I genuinely didn't see coming. The funniest scene is one I can't really describe on here, but look out for a drunken sexual encounter that left me giggling so hard I had to rewind the DVD! Great fun, highly recommended.

9/10
