They don't get much worse than this. Crass, dull, superficial adaptation of a novel that could have made a good TV comedy.
17 April 2003 | by AlanJ2See all my reviews

Very dull, laborious adaptation of Amis's amusing satire. The hero is portrayed not as a likeable loser but a merely oafish cretin. Most of the rest are pure caricatures with only Helen McCrory putting in real quality and providing something of the novel's wit. The period setting is camped up as if it were the 1920s, not the post-war period of horror comics and rock'n' roll. A real dud even by the standards of bad UK TV.
