How Colin Firth got involved in this mess is astonishing. Mischa Barton, who only has a walk on part in the film and yet recieved top billing was clearly conned and should file a law suit. Russel Brand however has no excuse. Every joke, every gag, every scenario is a poorly executed cliche. The hack writing and even worse delivery are an affront to comedic acting as an artform. Rupert Everett, who stars in (clumsily in a dual role) and produced this apocolypse of base humor appears to be responsible. Whats even more unbelivable is that apparently a sequal has been made, when in my opinion everyone involved in this mess should be banned from any involvement in motion pictures for the rest of their careers. That includes the caterers. Expand

I actually found the film a pleasant homage to the original. It has the same mad-cap pacing and has excellent cast with highly entertaining characters. It's predictable, but sweet. And the plot is silly but satisfying.

Perhaps not a perfect

Perhaps not a perfect ten movie, more of an eight or seven really, but it deserves higher then a zero so I'm marking up a little. It's good for a night with a nice meal, a bit too much wine and a few friends over. If you're looking to act like a movie critic and hate this movie i'm sure you wouldn't have too much trouble, but give it a chance and you might enjoy yourself. Oh, and watch one of the originals first! they're still great!
