This lovable belly laugh of a buddy movie blows the lid off the sleazy stand-up comedy circuit... not to mention the mysterious realm of male friendship. Look out for basically every famous comedian in the country -- they all have cameo appearances.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Miller catches the dinge of the pub stand-up circuit nicely and certainly nails the desperation."
‑ Jason Solomons, Observer [UK]
"It's yet another of those British films with a good idea squandered because someone gives the go-ahead before the script is fully developed."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"Goes behind the scenes of the open-mic circuit where it proceeds to trip over the cables and get tangled in the curtains."
‑ Xan Brooks, Guardian
"It's a downbeat, low-key peek into the thankless task of climbing the greasy entertainment pole and you're rewarded - not with laughs - but a grim insight into quite how unfunny the comedy world can be."
‑ Tim Evans, Sky Movies
"... The lack of mirth coupled with the self-conscious kook employed in characterisation, make it hard to care whether they succeed or not and difficult to know if they'd deserve it if they did."
‑ Ed Whitfield, The Ooh Tray
"Expect bigger laughs staring at the roof of your own oven with gas hissing into your ears."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"Huge is painfully unfunny and desperately unconvincing."
‑ Caroline Jowett, Daily Express
"[A] failed comedy, disguised as a dopey drama, shot with the most dispiriting fuzzy flatness, and scripted like a soap. It's all epically feeble."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"Poorly directed, badly written and cripplingly miscast, this is a desperately unfunny comedy that fails on every conceivable level."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"A thoroughly disheartening affair that looks like it was shot through gauze..."
‑ Neil Smith, Total Film
"You'd think comedian Ben Miller's day job as one half of double act Armstrong and Miller would have stood him in good stead for his directing debut - a film about a comedy double act. It hasn't. His screen duo aren't the least bit funny or enaging."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"Sadly, despite all those comedians the movie falls short on laughs."
‑ Catherine Jones, Liverpool Echo
"The almost complete absence of wit from the screenplay ensures that this study of aspiration, delusion and desperation is as unendurable as one of Warren and Clark's routines."
‑ David Parkinson, Radio Times
"Not hugely funny."
‑ Patrick Peters, Empire Magazine
