I would agree with the other reviewers that Ant & Dec are decent actors
- they were decent enough in the unchallenging confines of "Byker
Grove" - but their ubiquitous presence on British television has
significantly reduced their dramatic credibility. Would you cast Cilla
Black or Jonathan Ross in a movie? Exactly. This duo have morphed into
television presenters and, sorry guys, there's no way back.
That apart, this movie is a mess - muddled tone, uncertain direction, a
lower budget than most people's wedding videos - it's not much more
than an over-extended sketch. Die-hard Ant & Dec fans may well find
something about it to enjoy, but the rest of us (and the lads' agents,
no doubt) will be begging the cheeky Geordie chappies to head back to
the Australian jungle - and preferably stay there this time..
better luck next time Ant and Dec
Oh dear, it is a shame that my lowest score so far in my time on IMDb
should go to a film with two actors I quite like.
Ant and Dec, have always had that common touch, an ability to appeal to
a wide cross section of the public. The main reason I should imagine
for them being cast in this ill conceived movie. Lets be honest how
interesting can you really make a story like this, it's sort of a one
trick pony. Still the lads did a decent enough job of trying to carry
it off, so no real shame on them. After all any actor is only as good
as the material put in front of them.
Anyway do not go and see this movie, you will walk from the cinema
thinking, bum I shouldn't have wasted my time and money..
