very enjoyable and heartfelt too
13 April 2012 | by (Malta) – See all my reviews

I must say that I wasn't expecting to enjoy this as much as I thought, but I actually very much did! I went in just expecting the usual funny Ricky with the added bonus of Karl Pilkinton in the mix but was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't just humorous, but unexpectedly very touching and heartfelt. Ricky is obviously a very intellectual and talented individual and even though he does take the mickey out of many people at the best of times, he truly is a very caring person and would never offend people with disabilities for the sake of a good laugh. For those who are as skeptical as I was, don't be, give it a try, its not what you'd expect.
