For all its comic panache, A Fantastic Fear of Everything too often feels forced rather than funny - the strain evident in the setup is rarely worth the payoff, and the result simply proves exhausting.

The effect eventually becomes that of about a dozen story pitches all strung together. Any one of them might have the potential for greatness in isolation. Try to mash them up into one movie, though, and much like Jack, they fall to pieces.

A Fantastic Fear Of Everything is more amusing than uproarious, and often not even that; it plays like a couple of over-extended sketches featuring the same thinly drawn character.

This effortfully quirky pic refuses to settle for mere ineptitude, adding casual misogyny and pronounced racism to its rap sheet.

Exasperation eventually morphs into unrelenting pain, and there's not a single, solitary laugh to be had.
