Ian Douglas: Some American critics slated this as unfunny, I found it very funny. One can't help feeling sorry for the poor schmuck as he lurches from one disaster to another.

Nicola Jones 20: I found this movie hilarious. It's one of the best I've seen in a really long time!!

Aman Jumna 20: Very unlike the usual storylines especially the original final lie detector test.
