Is it any wonder the British Film Industry is declining?
26 January 2004 | by MsMovieSee all my reviews

How in God's name did something this awful ever get made in the first place? How does writing this bad get sold? What was Shane Richie thinking? (He is an OK actor, but he's never going to be in the acting class of the greats and he should stick to lightweight stuff, like Eastenders, in which he is essentially himself.) - Come to think of it Shane was just the same in this movie too!

The worst thing about this film (if we ignore how bad the script and directing are) is the acting itself. I mean, there are some well known talents in this little movie who are acting like total hams, in fact, there is not one bit of good acting in this whole movie.

I truly wish I was not one of the few people who actually bothered to see this film, I would rather have stayed home and waxed my legs, or done something else equally painful but at least somewhat useful.

My advice to anyone thinking of investing in a British movie is, DON'T, if this is what we produce and think will make money, wait until you see a great script like The Full Monty come along, now that's class.

This movie is total dross - do not even waste 50p to rent it on video!

Want to see a good movie - see Lost In Translation, The Last Samurai, East is East, The Full Monty, Good Will Hunting, even Rocky - all with compelling scripts!
