Her revved-up plotlines caper through over-extended blockbusters, scaling them down 'for people who can't be bothered'. The results are hilarious. (THE OBSERVER)
Irreverent, accurate and very funny, Movies in Fifteen Minutes is a must for anyone with a sense of humour who loves films. (IMAGE)
If your man sees going to the cinema as a waste of drinking time, this book's bite sized portions of the 10 biggest films is ideal. (B Magazine)
Had us giggling. The piss takes spliced into the revised scripts of blockbusters such as The Lord of the Rings and Gladiator make it well worth a read. (DVD Review)
Like most great premises this is a deceptively simple one: entire movies summarised in flippant and sometimes hilarious ways. For the blog generation there is much to enjoy. (Catherine Bray HOTDOG)
Convinced that most movies could tell their entire story in a fraction of their running time, Jones has kindly produced amusingly condensed scripts for some of the biggest films of the last decade, from Jurassic Park to the Lord of the Rings. (Anna Carey THE IRISH TIMES)

Excellent. More, please.
Don't worry if you're a diehard fan of these films - it's not remotely meanspirited, and you won't feel as if your cherished LOTR or Star Wars is being attacked. Nor do you need to have recently seen them to appreciate this book, or watched them lots of times. It's just funny. I lost count of the number of times I laughed out loud. I appreciate that humour is an exceedingly subjective beast, but with this you can't lose - read a couple of the online ones if you're not sure if this is worth your six quid. But it most assuredly is.
Recommended to all!
