A wasted opportunity
2 April 2002 | by davideo-2See all my reviews

STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs

The set-up and concept for this comedy flick,as well as the user-friendly running time of just 83 minutes,looked set to be rib-tickling.Sadly however,the directorial debut of Tony Grounds is a huge disappointment,with very few laughs and very unbelievable performances.It could have been great.Sadly,it is anything but.**
