    Reasonably entertaining, and though I'm not sure that it's exactly how it happened it's all good fun.

    national lampoon? what the fuck... i guess this website is run by moron usa'rs... anyway... far be it from me to correct a vegetable. it doesn't really matter anyhow coz this was such an average comedy. the only good thing was paul kaye and that's only in the first half before the story becomes so predictable and unfunny. as i read somewhere else... it's watchable because the characters are friendly like and the main bit of totty in it is hot also. i didn't read that last bit. i saw that last bit and wished it was in less clothes

    I enjoyed it but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone as it's not very funny. I enjoyed it for playing 'spot the cameo' and very little else. Paul Kaye comes across as creepy, rather than being charasmatic. It also stuck rigidly to the formula of poor guy goes to the top, loses his friends/girl/family and manages to work out what's truly important just in time. 6/10 but only as I can see it for the satirical film it's trying to be. As for tacking on the National Lampoon name then that's just a desperate move, I cannot see how this could appeal to anyone outside of the UK.
