Keith Lemon (Leigh Francis) is preparing to take his invention, the securipole, which he has been attempting to lift off the ground for twenty years, to a business convention in London. Meanwhile, his girlfriend Rosie (Laura Aikman) has discovered that she is pregnant, but due to Keith being away, instead confides in his best friend, Dougie (Kevin Bishop). At the convention, the securipole fails to attract any big investor attention, and back at home, an order of 1,000,000 securipoles arrives, much to Rosie and Dougie's dismay. Realising that his invention may never be successful, and that he now owes Evil Steve (Leigh Francis) a ton of money for the securipoles, Lemon decides to stay in London, and takes the advice of fellow businessman Kushvinder (Harish Patel), and accepts the gift of a new style mobile phone that Kushvinder has invented. Attempting to turn the gift into his next money-making scheme, Lemon accepts an offer to appear on David Hasselhoff's prime time television chat ...Written by
Never before have I contemplated walking out of the cinema during a film, but during this one myself and the other 6 people I was with were very close to it. We didn't really know what to expect from it, but judging by previous reviews and looking at its 2.9/10 average rating, we should've lowered these expectations even further. The fact the screen was pretty empty should've also given us a clue, but unfortunately we'd already bought the tickets by then.
To all the people that have said "oh but this is what he's all about" or "that's his kind of humour", no. He's capable of much more than what he shows in this terrible, terrible 85 minutes. I read another review that said there was an age divide in the humour - our group spanned an age range of 16 to 45 and not one of us found it funny. It was just painful to watch, really. He was trying much too hard to build on his already beloved character and just made himself look really quite silly.
The only thing I'm pleased about with this film is that my local cinema only charges £2.50 a ticket, so it's not as if I had to break the bank to waste an hour and a half of my life... Would not recommend this film at all to anyone!!
