| Pretty awful (the bits I saw).
This movie was a first for me - the first movie that I have ever left (or even contemplated leaving) half way through. It was dull and unfunny, but worst of all it was clichéd. Despite some appealing performances (particularly from the women, who had very little to do) the overall effect was dispiriting. The "all bosses are bastards" concept was laid on thickly, and the upper class Englishman stereotype was offensive and could probably be viewed as racist. (The supporting "ethnic" roles were also in questionable taste.) There was a lack of logic and consistency in the set-up - for example, the English boss was a skinflint who bought a house because it was cheap but drives an expensive car. After smiling once, laughing never and gritting my teeth constantly, I left about the half way mark. Even though this is a short movie it wasn't worth wasting any more of my time on. I take no pleasure in criticising what is obviously a low budget movie, but I took even less pleasure in watching it.
