Not hysterically funny, but definitely fun to watch
12 May 2008 | by adam-1009See all my reviews

"Missing pieces" is just one of those movies that you know isn't a masterpiece, but still can't help not to watch :) It is light comedy, with pretty good plot, entertaining and full of gags.

Monty Python fans won't be amazed by this display of Idle's talents, but together with Wuhl they make good pair of "losers" that seek there own breakaway from their current lives when they start to run after "it".

This movie is somehow great fun to watch with good performances from Eric Idle and Robert Wuhl. If you've enjoyed Idle in "Nuns on the run" this movie shouldn't disappoint you.
