    I am a sucker for Kristen Wiig this looks delightfully off the wall!

    Mr. Grey in a comedy

    I loved this!! It reminded me a lot of something like Austin Powers and Wet Hot American Summer, it's completely daft but just switch off and enjoy the ride. Very surprised by Dornan's comedy chops and be keeps his natural accent which is refreshing.

    This was hit and miss for me. I was worried at the beginning because a lot of moments were falling flat (and the antagonist felt a bit too Dr Evil), but it definitely settles into a nice groove once the titular duo reach the hotel.

    I wish more comedies were being made like this, in general - a pre-Apatow era of wacky concepts and nonsensical set pieces. Felt very 90s in that regard - you could it being a former SNL sketch turned into a movie, like Wayne's World.

    The overall tone reminded me of Hot Rod, and both happen to have music performance scenes ripped off from Footloose :D I'd recommend it but with a few caveats, and I'd advise to wait for the rental price to drop.

    I’ll wait a while to see it.

    Gave it 24 minutes and then had to turn it off as it was approaching the most annoying load of bollix I have ever seen in my entire life. Decided to watch it based on recommendation on Six O'Clock Show Tv lady.

    That trailer looks absolutely appalling.

    Total drivel - how the hell this has such an high rating is beyond me, didn't even raise a smile - must be lots of middle aged women giving it 10

    Watched this last night and I just can't get my head around exactly what I watched, it was horrific. I thought it was just me for a while but my wife agreed.


  • Registered Users Posts: 75,027 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1
