Awful story about potty-mouthed men doing absolutely nothing.
29 May 2017 | by (Alberta, Canada) – See all my reviews

The concept is quite good, but the execution is infantile! The story is about four men who have spent years developing a computer game. At least one of the four is in overdraft at the bank when suddenly they hit the jackpot and sell their game for nearly 250 million pounds. However, unlike the clever series "At Home with the Braithwaites" where they added the twist of the Jackpot winner keeping her winnings a secret from her dysfunctional family; these four potty-mouthed simpletons hire a male quartet to sing a vulgar ditty at the doors of people they didn't like.

The story continues and deteriorates from here on. They gather their staff in the office, and drink champagne, dance on the furniture and act like drunken teenagers. One of the partners gives an attractive girl an 18,000 pound bonus, which slowly balloons to giving all the staff the same bonus. None of this was funny nor did it didn't advance the story line. Indeed all it did is confirm that these are pre- pubescent teenagers masquerading as successful entrepreneurs.

A sitcom with nothing funny is bad enough, but there was some hope when they were unexpectedly sued by an ex-employee for copyright infringement. However, they quickly settled this issue in two or three minutes--so not even a whisper of drama. The only reason I watched the episode to the end was because half way through I started checking my library for something more interesting. Fortunately, I had a print copy of "Watching Paint Dry for Dummies" which saved the day!
