Relatively charm-free characters mean this film plods from one predictable set piece to another, occasionally enlivened by one-liners and appearances from more experienced actors (Richard E Grant, Martin Kemp, Sheridan Smith, Colin Salmon, Neil Maskell and Martin Compston… director Dominic Burns must be well-connected). It’s not the worst British comedy, but if it were a TV pilot – which it feels like – there’d be little chance of this winning a full series.

This film has one redeeming factor to measure against the awful plot, wooden acting and general embarassment. Normally films this bad start with the UK Film Council logo and advertise that our lottery money has been wasted on it. This film is mercifully lottery free so none of our money has been wasted. The fools who put their money into this attempt at comedy have got a truly awful film in return. It will do nothing to further the career of anyone in it. You wouldn't want to take your wife or girlfriend to see it and you would be embarassed to watch it at home with your parents. Avoid it like the plague. At least, if you are male going to see the Twilight film with your better half will gain you some brownie points.
