Audience Reviews for The Martins (The Tosspots)

A cringeable look at Britain's stereotypical benefit scroungers, it's a fairly humourous film, nothing great but certainly worth a watch.

I always feel these are the type of films that non-Brits should watch as opposed to the 'Bridget Jones' style ones.

Most people associate Kathy Burke with comedy, but it's defintely these kind of roles that Kathy shines in.
