Hilarious. No, just kidding. It’s not good.
Conceptually, this might have felt good. Maybe the script was funny if you were drinking a little bit or just down the pub with mates. On screen it’s slow, empty, with only a few laughs and the charisma of the cast to keep it alive.
The two Steves, manic Jim, dead-pan Alan and stunning Olivia are all good and make a fare attempt at pulling the thing together but the clearly obvious plot and end-game as well as the lack of memorable scenes are a let down.
DVD Extras: On my cheap DVD I got one, semi-funny gag reel and that was it. One semi does not make me want more.
Watch if on TV?
Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Avoid. In fact, make it disappear.
