So bad it's.....well, crap really.
14 September 2004 | by oimackeySee all my reviews

With so many famous comedy actors you would think this could raise a few laughs. Unfortunately it is so so predictable and most of the characters and jokes are one dimensional and so clichéd. A waste of time and no doubt lottery money has been wasted. Even viewed as a harmless bit of fun this film must rate as poor. The storyline is obvious and uninspired, the acting wooden and the sporting action - as in so many British sports films - a joke. Am i the only person who thinks Neil Morrisey is the most overrated, luckiest and annoying comedy actors around. Got to remark on Samantha Janus' arse....i don't think i've seen a better one on screen. A perfect 10/10. Absolutely gorgeous!! Should have showed a lot more of it.
