Utter Garbage
Verified purchase
Watched 15 minutes of this trash, very dated, not very funny but it does have a good cast, all of them must regret being involved with this project of ineptitude apart from Robert Carlyle who has specialised in poor quality 2nd rate projects for many years. I begrudge it every penny of the 99p I spent renting it.

This is such a good film, I'm so glad I bought it! I've watched it over and over again, and I still laugh every time I watch it. All the actors in it are brilliant, and give a very convincing performance, definitely worth watching!

A great cast could not save the poor script
Verified purchase
The storyline seemed a bit week. Didn’t seem to be going anywhere . Only watched first half, it may have picked up later but we lost interest.

Same actors, same characters bah blah blah
Verified purchase
Cliche characters, some going through the motions acting from too familiar faces and quite a disappointing failure compared with many of Mr Meadows other films..

Well worth watching!

Loved this when I first saw it on television and it is a cracking story. Robert Carlyle plays a real waster in this and as always is a brilliant actor.

Big names in a mediocre film
Verified purchase
This film was mildly amusing but with the well known cast, we were expecting more.
