"Sweet fucking Christ do the British suck."
1 stars

This was a movie about playwrites I don't like. They spoke in heavy British accents making it had to understand anything they say. They randomly start speaking french. There in nudity for no reason. At all

On most occasions I wouldn't hate this movie as much as I did... no... wait... The Full Monty sucked balls as well.... And so did some more British peices of shit... Howards End... Ugh...

But this was so much worse. So unbelievably bad it blew my mind. My friend and I started laughing at how bad it was. It was just... so awful....


Christ i hated it...

We left 30 minutes into it.

British people and French people deserve each other.

Oh... How this sucked.Oh how this sucked.
