Storyline

Omar and Pete are half brothers. When their parents are eaten by lions they embark on a journey to find Omar's real father. What follows is a funny, heart-warming journey of self-discovery for both boys...in Blackpool. The Choudray family represents a truly contemporary example of modern multicultural Britain - but what will the brothers make of their eccentric newfound family? Will they be going to Mecca or Mecca bingo? In contrast to the old fashioned stereotypes about Blackpool, the comedy is sharp, current and non-stop.

Eaten By Bad Acting
20 July 2019 | by thekingsdomSee all my reviews

This is terrible. First of all, the lead actor looks 'handsome' but can't act to save his life. The rest of the cast also can't act and struggle with badly written cardboard dialogue. Finally, the writing / dialogue is trying way to hard to be 'super witty' and comes across as super forced. Poor. 4/10
