While it isn't a shot-for-shot replica, certainly no one can accuse Hollywood of dumbing things down here.

A funny film, but it's not one that I found myself growing passionate about as I watched.

If the film is so close to the original as to also be pretty much disposable once its over, at least it as well serves up a healthy amount of laughs during its very brief and brisk run time.

A little more tweaking for the actual actor's voices to come through, instead of trying to put them into pre-concieved places, may have worked better, but on the whole, it's still an excellent example of how the ensemble comedy should work.

It's almost a checklist of things I don't like, but it won me over in its opening minutes and never let go.

The crackerjack ensemble of actors milks each moment like old vaudeville pros.

What this movie really has going for it is a great cast who manage to make some obvious comedy situations genuinely amusing.

Even if you've seen it all before, chances are it's been a while since you've seen it done this well. And if you saw the 2007 version, you've seen it done a lot worse.

Remarkably, the US remake succeeds where the UK original failed, smoothing out the rough edges and mining the material for better laughs, though it's still not quite as funny as it should have been.

Although it still only just gets away with sundry homophobic and size-ist gags, there's a tad more zing than the original, though if you caught that already, be warned: this is a scene-for-scene retread.

This American remake of the 2007 UK-set farce is superior in every way.

a reasonably funny, but considerably less than perfect farce that includes some funny performances, but doesn't have a whole lot holding it together.

A perfectly pleasant piffle, a comedy that fails to produce many big laughs but knows how to parcel out its small ones at an acceptable clip.
