Didnt like the Spleen. That might be just me but this one hit joke was peddled too far. Mr Furious was fun but not big enough. The rest were, well, sub standard. The idea was there but it didnt get anywhere. I like the bowling ball.

Anyway, I watched this a while ago, twice, then recently told someone it was really funny. I lent them the DVD and that very night it was on TV so, deprived of the disc, I opted for the small screen and, annoyingly, it fell a lot shorter than I remembered. Big time. In fact I wasnt bothered if I never got it returned to me.

The fickle changes in taste or did the novelty only last for a couple of watches?

Well enough made, cast is good and nothing wrong with production but it just isnt a great film.

DVD extras didnt get me excited either.
Keep DVD?
No.
Watch if on TV?
No.
Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Avoid.
