I don't watch many comedies because most of them are awful, but I am a fan of Ricky Gervais, and so I had to give Special Correspondents a go. After watching it, I can say that it is the best comedy I've seen in a few years. I'm not sure why all the negative reviews. It has many of the kind of characters Ricky Gervais is known for, so maybe those reviewing it, just don't like his style.

I thought it was really well written and executed, and the cinematography was very impressive for a comedy.

Sure, it had a few flat moments, but it kept my interest throughout and made me laugh out loud a lot, right up to the end.

I've already recommended my colleagues watch it, and I would happily sit down and watch it again.
