The gags are either too inside, lazily paced, or simply not funny.

The film has about as much sense of structure as - well, as Thirst, but I laughed a fair bit.

Time Out

An endearing effort with enough heart to fill the gaps where the gags dry up or fall flat.

Some British film-makers never give up and Shane Meadows is one of them. He'd make a movie of a custard pie if he could. And generally there's entertainment to be had from even his most hand-to-mouth efforts.

A fun five day feature from one of Britain's finest filmmakers.

Considine is outrageously funny and never steps out of character, but the film hardly adds up to an evening's entertainment.

Empire Magazine

A monumental mockumentary from Brit cinema's premier director/actor double act. True, daft, emotional, hilarious.

Small but perfectly formed. Meadows and Considine synthesize a little gem from a familiar conceit: the deluded loser with a chance at stardom. Perfectly judged… More
