Clunkily directed, gross-out blue-collar comedy is simply a smuttier version of '70s Britcoms like Confessions of a Window Cleaner.

This boastfully pushes the boundaries of taste, but lacks either wit or skill.

A peculiarly dispiriting comedy.

To be honest, you'd probably have more fun and laughs by going into your kitchen and just staring at an ordinary potato.

It's a film which isn't in the slightest bit funny or sexy, and is deeply depressing.

August 4, 2014 Full Review Source: Guardian

A lifeless waste of time.

June 19, 2007 Full Review Source: ViewLondon

With an apparent mission to make the ultimate gross-out comedy, first-time director Andy Humphries has instead made something merely gross, which resembles a pilot episode of an uninspired sitcom that somebody neglected to edit.

This is, I hope, the only movie that has shown, or will ever show, Johnny Vegas, topless, in not one, but two gangbang scenes.

This doesn't have the wit to stagger to the end of the pier.

This has all the wit and charm of a smutty seaside postcard.

Neither sexy nor funny.

British film comedy takes another body blow with this shoddy, vulgar and indifferently acted sex romp. Hard to believe that it comes from the same producer as In This World.

March 24, 2004 Full Review Source: Film4

The result would be unspeakably vile if it wasn't so embarrassingly puerile.
