Early Appearance by John MolloyBy Carl Anderson from UK , 09 Jun 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]A fleeting first - and last - appearance on the silver screen by John Molloy in the lift scene is the most compelling reason to rent this film.

slow and overactedBy a customer from london , 25 Aug 2010takes a really long time to get to the point (nearly one hour before we meet the northern pig farmer). Too slow and a bit overacted.
An unamusing portrayal of negative stereotypesBy Sheffield (1 review) from Sheffield , 15 Aug 2010I found this film a little far fetched but mostly i was
unimpressed with the portrayal of the northern English working classes. The insinuation that all Yorkshire farmers are uneducated people living in filth is rather offensive. Not worth watching.
Surreal, but it just got a bit silly..By PCambridge (10 reviews) from Cambridge , 04 Jun 2009I thought I was going to like this film for the first 20-30 minutes, but Leon just continued to be whiney, and the comedy got more and more surreal, without having any characters that were at all sympathetic. The situations with the Jewish family trying to be 'English' and the Yorkshire family trying to be Jewish, just annoyed me by being a load of stereotypes. That was the point of course, and others might find it funny - just didn't appeal to me.. We watched the whole film, but that was more because we got about 2 thirds through before we realised how pants it was.
Leon the Pig farmerBy Jenkins (43 reviews) from Swansea , 18 Apr 2009Really enjoyed seeing this again. Well done to the two writers who made this for £160,000. Brian Glover is excellent among the rest of the Brits.
Dated FilmBy a customer from Beckenham , 25 Jan 2009Found the film dated and slow aced and boring
