Conclusions

There isn’t a huge amount to say about this really. We watched it because I was ill, tucked up under a duvet and feeling very sorry for myself. Thus, a bit of the bright yellow sponge to cheer everything up!

It’s just like the TV show but on the bigger screen: crazy and manic, full of bizarre sequences and odd humour, but generally did the job!

Rating: 3/5.
