Warning - "shoppe UK" send you a scoring pad and nothing else. Description seems confusing on purpose. Now have to mess around sending back.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite comedies., 7 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Employee Of The Month [DVD] (DVD)
Hilarious comedy.
Zac is hell-bent on winning over the new chick whos working at K-Mart, but he has the fastest check-out'er in the east in his way!
This film is seriously cheesy humour. If you like those types of lines, then you will love this! I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kick-Ass could only dream to be this good!, 26 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Mystery Men [DVD] (DVD)
I love this.
Yeah its very daft, but its my type of humour.
I thought Kick-ass was marketed as a film similar to this, but turned out to be some strange violent muddle that i didnt like.
This is great.
If you like films starring Ben Stiller, you will love this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not funny. Watch "Mystery Men" (1999) instead., 25 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Kick-Ass [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
Started off very well. The first 20 minutes were great. Then the so-called failed superhero became cool.
In my opinion this film wasnt funny. What started off as a comedy, ended up more like a serious superhero film. Either that or it was neither, and somehow just didnt work for me.
You want a funny superhero spoof? Then watch "Mystery Men" (1999) starring ben Stiller. Now that is funny!

Tropic Thunder (3-Disc Directors Cut) [DVD]
Tropic Thunder (3-Disc Directors Cut) [DVD]
Dvd ~ Ben Stiller

4.0 out of 5 stars They cut the best bits out?!, 10 Dec. 2010
I couldnt believe my eyes when viewing this.
They cut out some of the funnyist scenes, which is pretty crazy really!
The original really didnt have to drag on (in places) like it did.
Anyways... i agree with the other reviewer who remarked that it imporves with repeat viewings.
It does, but it still somehow doesnt come together to make it a legenadary comedy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than 'see no evil, hear no evil', 10 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Stir Crazy [DVD] (DVD)
Great stuff. Funny all the way through.
Best moment for me was the scene in the Jail with the big guy.
These 2 guys worked so well together, and this film of theirs has gaffs all the way through and great replay value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing first 20 minutes makes it worth watching., 10 Dec. 2010
It never keeps up with a sensational start, but by then it doesnt matter as your already won over.
Such a great concept and idea for a film.
5 stars from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars The last great steve martin & eddie murphy film., 10 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Bowfinger [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
This was a real suprise.
Back when it was released id never heard of this before.
Its since become one of my favourite comedies.
Its not constantly funny but has moments that surpass anything else done, thats why its such a classic!
Watch it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Felt let down, had alot of potential., 10 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great idea (although similar, and done far better in the film BowFinger)
Funny actors.
Funny lines in places.
Steve Coogan was in it!
Big budget! (that was obvious!).
In places started to get going, somehow it never managed too.
I want to give it 5 stars, because i love Ben Stiller, Coogan and this type of humour, but i cant bring myself to do it. :---(
Still ... i guess you should focus on what you get, rather than what you could of had! Similar to a one-night stand with a beautiful woman.
So its gets 4 stars from me.
Hopefully next time Stiller will go one step further, and make something legendary! The ingredients are there!

** Get the directors cut as it has some of the best scenes included!

5.0 out of 5 stars Reallly really funny! :-), 10 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Burn After Reading [DVD] (DVD)
I soooo didnt want to like this!
Im someone who will like to find a good reason to dislike whats fashionable and 'in' by many.
The actors are well-known and often over-hyped, as the director can be.
But man........THIS IS BRILLIANT!
Brad Pitt and George Clooney have flown up in my estimations as has the director/writer.
I never thought id nearly wet myself laughing at Brad Pitt before, but it happened. Same with Clooney.
Great characters!
If you love dark humour this is one of THE BEST films out there.
So tragic, so real, yet so damn funny!
