The team behind the cult Channel 4 sitcom Peep Show makes the leap to features with this comedy concerning a pair of feuding magicians. When their long-running double act ends in disaster, the pair employs every power at their disposal to make each other's lives unbearable. Andrew O' Connor directs a script penned by Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain, and Peep Show regulars David Mitchell and Robert Webb star as the warring wizards. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Perky turns from supporting thesps can't compensate for the sense that this plays like an attenuated TV episode.
Something of a disappointment, due to a poorly conceived script and an underdeveloped plot.
O'Connor's direction has absolutely zero visual flair, making the performers' transition from television to film rather pointless.
t's a perfectly agreeable way to while away an hour and a half -- but don't expect to remember much about it in the morning.
It's a cruel, mean-spirited kind of humour that highlights the lack of anything resembling real wit in the screenplay.
The bumbling charms of the stars just about pull this through, but there'll be few calls for an encore come the final curtain.
