MARNY I absolutely hated this, it was awful. Everything from the story line to the humour. If it weren’t for Film Club, I would most certainly have walked out. I even broke all my own rules at the cinema and chomped away on M&Ms while using my iPhone to make the time pass quicker!’
‘Now don’t get me wrong, I have no issues with crude humour (I thoroughly enjoyed American Pie, The Hangover etc) but this was just ridiculously stupid and did not make me laugh at all.’
‘The story line did nothing for me either; we’re shown Keith Lemon’s life and expected to sympathise with him but I found him so vile, selfish and self-centred that I just couldn’t give a donkeys about him.’
‘There must be some people who find him funny, if they thought he was good enough to make a film. But it portrayed British humour in such a bad light!’
‘I would never recommend this to anyone, not even to an enemy.’
IVONNE ‘I honestly did not enjoy it at all. I felt as though the trailer had given a lot of the funny parts away, and the audience I saw it with didn’t seem to be enjoying it either.’
‘I usually like pop culture references in movies but I’d reckon they went a little overboard this time.’
‘I don’t understand how any of the celebrities willingly got involved with it. I was especially surprised to see Gary Barlow!’
‘I love big star cameos that are unexpected but in truth, these were simply non-actors who were thrown in for the sake of being thrown in. It was just a Celebrity Juice ensemble and completely pointless.
‘Plus it was just a bit of a mishmash plot-wise (as expected), with everything else moved aside in favour of Lemon’s repetitive ‘shock’ humour.’
‘Having watched his shows I knew what to expect so it wasn’t so much that it went too far, it was just so repetitive it makes a mockery of the term comedy.’
MARK Keith Lemon: The Film was absolutely appalling.’
‘I can’t say I’m his greatest fan in the first place, but he does make me chuckle sometimes. This was just terrible though.’
‘The innuendos had all been done before and the script was nearly non-existent. How this made it into the cinema, I have no idea. It just seemed like one big excuse for Leigh Francis to get all his celeb mates in on the act.’
LYNN ‘Although I am a fan of Celebrity Juice, the Keith Lemon film was every bit as horrendous as the trailer led me to believe. Even the appearance of Ronan Keating didn’t save it for me.’
‘I think I just about smiled once but didn’t laugh at all. It just wasn’t funny!’
‘I’m no prude but the sex references weren’t the slightest bit amusing and were only there for the sake of being crude.’
‘All the cameos were obviously just in it as a favour to Leigh Francis, surely they can’t believe that this drivel will further their careers?’
Where do we even begin? We’re not the biggest fans of Keith Lemon (aka Leigh Francis) anyway, but this was really scraping the bottom of the barrel. Shaving the wood off of it, in fact. There can be no reason for this movie’s existence other than the fact the Inbetweeners movie made a bunch of money and Channel 4 thought they’d jump on the bandwagon.
The script is terrible, following the Lemonmeister as he goes from rags to riches and remains unwatchably obnoxious throughout. Note to the man named Francis: blurting out as many explicit words as you can think of for the best part of 90 minutes does not a comedy make. It just makes you look desperate and, if we’re honest, kind of sad. Plus you know you’re in trouble when a single party scene takes up half the movie.
Also looking sad and desperate is the endless stream of celebrities, who actually agreed to make cameos in this steaming pile of drivel. Some of them we actually respect (we’re looking at you, Gary Barlow.) Time to take stock, perhaps, and learn to feel shame.
But just what is this Film Club malarkey all about? It’s simples, really. Each week we send a pair of cinema tix (ODEON or Cineworld, whichever is best) to 10 of our most active Facebook/Twitter followers. We put the film we’re going to see to the vote, and the winning film is the one we all go to see. Then we all sit around on Facebook on the Sunday night (6.30) and chat about it. Magic. Sound like something you want to get involved with? Drop us a line at twitter.com/f_t_r_c or on Facebook at on.fb.me/d4dMv8
