Conclusions

This is another of those films that is really, very bad. Entertaining and fun to watch but not a good film at all. And considering the cast, it was a wasted opportunity really. It should have been funnier, should have had a stronger, less predictable story, should have been better.

Good to watch if you’re at a loose end and want something that isn’t going to make you think, at all, but I’m not actually recommending it to anyone.

Rating: 2/5.
