The space race has been dominated for decades by two rival superpowers, but just when they thought they were alone, a new force has arrived. Britain has developed an amazing space exploration buggy that might solve the planets energy problems. But will Britain's greatest achievement become one conman's finest hour? Will Spencer and his right hand man/master of disguise will re-unite alongside Will's niece Fiona head of marketing at the British Space Centre, and Travis, Tom's accident-prone son, in a series of comical misadventures spanning across the United Kingdom and beyond! In this fun family movie, our unlikely heroes will create a plan the likes of which the world has never before seen, to steal what every government wants. And the only person that stands in their way is Scotland Yard's worst detective. Together they will use the UK's highly developed space technology to outsmart the world's most powerful ambassadors, and ultimately help put the 'Great' back into Great Britain.

What do you get when you mix an Eastender, a Minder and Red Dwarfer...? A mindless red faced Eastender!
25 January 2008 | by steelhamsterSee all my reviews

Difficult where to start with this pig of a movie.... although it hasn't beaten the title of worse British movie ever (which I still believe 'Sex Lives of the Potato Men' will hold forever) it has little to recommend it.

I caught it on a movie channel, and was interested only because Chris Barrie was in it. As a huge Red Dwarf fan, I look forward to see the actors in that appear in other things. He shone in the Tomb Raider movies as the groovy butler Hilary, so when I sat down to watch this film I expected great things.

I certainly set myself up for a big fall. It comes to something that the only funny bits are the end credit bloopers.

It just looked like cheap tat, and I thought the British Film industry had left this sort of weak stuff behind (see previous comment about the Potato Men) but this just lets old Blighty down.

If any non Brit comes across this in the bargain bin or on a cable channel, don't judge us too harshly, we didn't know.... we are innocent.

We need more Sexy Beasts and Lock Stocks and less of this insipid stuff.
