The barrel-scraping dash to bring TV comedy to the big screen sours considerably with this crude, unfunny film starring mahogany tanned, mulletted, mouth-breathing Keith Lemon, alter-ego of comedian Leigh Francis (‘Celebrity Juice’, ‘Bo' Selecta!’). The back-of-the-fag packet script sees failed businessman Keith catapulted into an instant fortune after sticking the picture of a lemon on the back of a mobile (like Apple, geddit?). There are 13 year-old boys (you’d hope) who’d squirm at how puerile this is: erection gags, penis enlargement jokes, plus some titty titters to stop it getting too phallic. The constellation of C-listers making cameos (Gary Barlow, Peter Andre, Jedward and a couple of lesser Spice Girls) makes the Olympic closing ceremony look like a meeting a of Pulitzer winners. Career lows all round, then? Except possibly for Kelly Brook, who’s had her fair share – here, as Keith’s new girlfriend, she fellates an asparagus tip.

@Nick Manzi: If 'On the Buses' is your idea of 'Great British Humour', that probably explains why this movie turned out the way it did.

Big fan of celeb juice, but this film was a waste of money, yeahh some bits might have been a tad funny "I'm dripping like a fried egg sandwhich" but wasn't as near as funny as celeb juice, keith is a funny man when it comes natural fto him but written down by who ever wrote the film just made him look like a dork, stupid film!

Captain Crunch

A resplendent homage to Fellini and Truffaut. Dark and dystopian in places but with the gentle intelligent wit of a modern day Herzog. This movie is a munificene of magnanamous majesty, betrothed at it's core to the very fundamentals of a society at one with itself. Keith Lemon, I salute you, sir!

Won't be watching. It looks awful and I've read some pretty toxic reviews. By the way, it's Leigh Francis not Harris.

You're all miserable old farts who do not appreciate modern comedy! This is a work of art by the new generation of TV stars who come together to create a masterpiece of cinema. In years to come, you will look back at your reviews of this film and realise how stupid you were. This is a modern day comedy classic.

Mick Manzi - for being a producer of this excrement you should be locked up. Keith Lemon-The Film will only become a classic to retarded dope heads and will sink without trace. You cannot compare it with Confessions Of A Window Cleaner or Benny Hill. Robin Askwith and Benny Hill would've walked out of this and got a refund like I did.

I just want to say to NICK MANZI.. if you were part of the production I wouldnt admit it,, it was the worst film ever and it was mainly due to the bad editing , production, camera angles,, everything was shot badly for keiths comedy timing... I watch celebrity juice and im a big fan of keith on ITV and he has amazing comedy timing when it is natural and spontaneous, but a writen cheograghed fim just didnt work for his humour, and made it come across as cringy BAD HUMOUR..... ITV crew wouldve been better shooting and editing the movie.... i felt like walking out 10 minutes in, and ive NEVER felt like doing that ever before...... it was so unfunny, it just come across rude and offensive..... shittest movie ever.. made keith look like a right twat.. i wanna rate this film 0 stars, but you cant

As one of the producers and originators of this film I have to step in here to say what a bunch of humourless people you all are. This film is steeped in the tradition of Great British humour, from On the Buses, the Confessions films (Window Cleaner, Driving Instructor etc.) and Benny Hill. In years to come you will all be proven wrong, as Keith Lemon the Film becomes a true classic and no doubt the subject of many film studies degree courses.

I kan't say the letter C - Keith Lemon is a total bunt in this heap of tedious excrement. Kelly Brook may be pretty but even her looks are wasted in this. I lasted 55 minutes before walking out and getting a refund and never laughed once. I've seen some rubbish in my time and this ranks down there with the sludge at the bottom of the barrel. It tries to steal the laughs from Austin Powers type humour but with zero finesse and Lemon is cringingly ugly - a complete bunt. Excrement MINUS 5 STARS

Having been a great fan of Celebrity Juice this film was a must for me.But what disappointing Hour and a Half of well over the top crap.Usually KL is very funny with his near the knuckle comments but this film wasn't even funny. I guess Kelly Brook has not done her film career any favours, pity really as with her wonderful assets she should come up with something better. Don't wast your money going to see this film, wait for the new Celebrity Juice series coming soon.Hope this will be much better.

I agree virtually totally with Scrumpjack apart from one point. I think this is actually worse than the Wedding Video. This is undoubtedly the least funny attempt at moving a tv comedy into film that I have seen for a long long time. It makes the Ali G film look like Shakespeare in comparison. In time I imagine that the many guest stars playing themselves will regret ever being involved in this cringeworthy attempt at comedy. I don't think I have ever cringed as much or felt as embarassed as much watching a film. Truly awful. Avoid like the plague.

Laugh free (and I do mean ZERO) comedy nudges slightly ahead of the one laugh (and I do mean ONE) Dictator as it has no "NO! REALLY!" message to beat us over the head with. Same time last week I stated that when Statham your best actor, you know your'e in shit St...well his ex Kelly Brook is the best thing here.........you fill in the blanks. Still, not THE WEDDING VIDEO dreadful by miles, and Keith Lemon fans will do their pathetic 5* thing, no doubt. As I said (well, somewhat ranted!) after Sasha Cohen-Yesterday's News' dreadful folly, keep on buying your tickets for semi crud like this, folks. You keep mine down to £1.30 a pop. 4/10
