Critic Review - This is London

It could have been a match made in heaven. The snake in the garden is a tired script from Rob and Mark Cullen, which purports to "spoof" Eighties buddy movies (Beverly Hills Cop, Lethal Weapon, etc) but lacks any real brain power of its own.

The original screenplay actually won awards. The script, as written, was not shot. The reason the movie was made was because of the script, but if the principles don't adhere to the blueprint, unfortunately there's nothing the writer can do. Movies are a director's medium. Writers are looked at as a necessary evil on a movie set. If blame should go anywhere it should be placed with the people who deviate from the plan (screenplay). Easy to blame the writers if you are completely ignorant to the process.
