This is a very special kind of film, the sort that used to be called a TV movie.
The use of TV News broadcasts to move the story on, the B Grade acting, the holes in the plot all make a classic American TV movie that you might happen upon at midnight, watch for 5 minutes and fall asleep.
Unfortunately it is now deemed good enough for cinemas and features a full catalogue of explosions culminating in the demolition of an entire hospital and all apparently based around trying to spoil a secret service agent's reputation. An attempt to kill the president manages to kill 28 agents, blow up approximately 12 vehicles and half a National Park, but they forgot to target the guy himself and thus he swims off.
The worst Coogan/Partridge outing I have seen.
If it rises to the level of Benny Hill, I must have blinked.
A low key piece of whimsy only worth watching for how natural Freeman and Keaton look alongside everyone else. Charming in its way.
A very good capturing of the late 60s, but it suddenly veers off piste at the end with cartoon violence and inversion of what actually happened, but since the almost victims were stars I suppose in Hollywood nothing bad cn happen to them.
This is a classy lightweight fantasy that actually lives up to the hype with only very occasional holes in the story.
And when the band plays on the hotel roof, they are genuinely great.
What on earth persuaded Ed Sheeran to take part is beyond comprehension.
