BIG NOTHING - the irony is obvious

BIG NOTHING sadly lives up to its name. It stars an ex-Friend (David Schwimmer), a hillarious British comedian (Simon Pegg) and a random young British actress called (Alice Eve). They are marooned in a movie that aims at quirky crime-gone-wrong comedy of the kind I loved in THE WHOLE NINE YARDS but languishes in mediocrity. It is rarely funny, poorly scripted, over-dependent on visual quirks and despite its short 85 minute run-time bored me rigid. Most embarassing was Simon Pegg's painful American accent.

BIG NOTHING is on release in the UK and Ireland. Looks like the rest of the world is being spared.
