A Fantastic Fear of Watching This AgainBy Smudgy (77 reviews) from London , 11 Jan 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]Just awful. Pegg in 'manic' mode is completely unconvincing and comes over like a drama student trying to do whacky. To be fair the script that he has is utterly dreadful, so he didn't have much to work with. I laughed once and that was only for a rude word. I have absolutely no idea why he'd agree to be in such a poor film.

I've seen worse, but...By a customer , 31 Oct 2013Very predictable so misses the mark quite badly with most of the attempts at humour. It's about a man conquering his demons, but it largely concentrates on the demons til later in the movie when a couple of highly improbable characters are introduced. My other half fell asleep fairly early on and wasn't disappointed he missed it! That said, it's quite a sweet and harmless little movie, I felt that Simon Pegg played his quirky, tormented roll well.
Seriously rubbishBy a customer , 15 Oct 2013This is a Seriously rubbish film. Only get this is you have no life. The story line is pants! So avoid at all cost!
Don't write if off !By JackyP (5 reviews) , 09 Oct 2013A very comedic study of neuroses. Leaving aside the 'trial' script and the 'student' feel I think there's more. The visuals are good, there are some very some detailed sets and it's well directed. I really liked it for it's artistic creativity, it reminded me of some Mayall/Edmundson output. It definitely helps that Pegg starred as few people would otherwise be attracted to it and I agree with Pegg's own analysis that this is a very British comedy. I didn't necessarily enjoy it, but Iiked it and as a first film by a musician I think Mills did a good job, if you know Kula Shaker well, you'll see what he was getting at, although until the credits rolled, I didn't know he had written and directed it. I think Mills is worth another go.
Simon Pegg in the wrong hole!By LING0 (82 reviews) from Conwy , 08 Sep 2013I like Simon Pegg but the fact he had no part in the writing and that it isn't one of his collaborations with writing partner Nick Frost comes through quite clearly. The whole storyline is just a little daft and doesn't generate that many laughs.
Not good, not good at all...By snash123 (71 reviews) , 31 Aug 2013This was a disappointment I must say. Maybe because of the periodic feel setting, although modern day, maybe because Pegg's character just got on my last nerve after 30 minutes, or even the laundry scenario was just too predictable... nah in all it wasn't funny at all, not even a chuckle. Personally I think Simon Pegg is at his best when he is with Nick Frost. I have loved the movies they appeared together in, but I have yet to watch a film with Pegg on his own that I have at least mildly enjoyed.
