  • CRITICS LIKE

    Very funny but does tend to go a bit overboard with the crude humour and silliness. Funky credits. Nat (Rose Byrne) wears gorgeous outfits, one of which matches her sofa superbly. Stephen Merchant is hilarious; he delivers the world's worst best-man speech ever.

  • CRITICS DON'T LIKE

    Very crude humour. Some serious offences are committed on the dancefloor. Comedy feels forced, flat.
