Try as he might, the roguishly handsome Cliff Starkey, just can't keep out of trouble. In his sleepy home town on the English coast, nothing much inspires him...apart from bowls. Cliff has always preferred to play by his own rules much to the disapproval of the regimented, elderly bowls fraternity. Before long, the bay boy of bowls is turning the sedate and very English pastime upside down with hysterical results.Written by

During the England v. Australia match, most of the flags shown (including the graphics behind the "computer" head-shots) are Union Flags - the flag of the United Kingdom - and not St George Crosses - the flag of England. See more »
Right, Im not going to bore you with the intricacies of this film, as there aren't any, you've got your basic formula for a cheap sports comedy:
Enter one washed out nobody, who happens to be the don of <insert sport> Said nobody gets big breakthrough, simultaneously falling in love with some random blonde. Said blonde happens to be arch rivals relation blah blah blah
That aside, this film has the staple cheap gags, and the occasional visual gag, but, it never lifts off, sure, it'll make you laugh, but at what cost!
If your a fan of Johnny Vegas, don't bother seeing this, he is wasted in this.
Overall, a boring comedy, with cheap laughs and a blonde or two.
