User Review

Brilliantly Funny

Rating: 10/10


Well, in contrast to the first review, i felt that this was a
hilariously funny attribute to the British film industry. With
continuous amusing modern slap stick humour throughout.

I had been looking forward to the release of this film for a while, and
it was far better than i had ever expected. The cinema was packed and
everyone was laughing throughout the entire film, which in my
experience is very rare.

There is an incredible cast containing many well known British actors/
actresses, overall a must see film.

Looking forward to the DVD release. Thank you. x
