Fat Slags

How bad is it? It easily surpasses "Howard the Duck" as worst comic-based film.
Should you see it? No.

This is a tough one for me to review, as I've never seen the comic strip on which it's based; most of the extremely negative reviews out there are based on the fact that it doesn't adhere to the rules of the world of the comic. The two stars, in prosthetic suits, vacantly gape at the camera. People try to do northern British country accents and fail; the humor is largely based on class distinctions, which stopped working about 1970. This film will probably be remembered as the lowest point for the people involved, which include Jerry O'Connell, Gerri Halliwell and Naomi Campbell. Only 75 minutes long, I checked my watch several times, so it was a chore to sit through.
