oh dear
20 September 2006 | by therendergeneralSee all my reviews

what were Tim booth and, particularly Kieth Allen, thinking? ignore the previous comment! this truly was a tragic affair. it was embarrassing to watch and i cringed all the way thru. i'm sure you can see Kieth Allen thinking, 'what was i on when i agreed to do this'. I think its one of those things that possibly looks good on paper, but when brought to life is not exactly what you hoped it would be.

it just doesn't work on any level except comedic! to attach classic songs to this garbage is in itself blasphemis! avoid at all costs - close your eyes and just pretend it never happened..... ahhhhhhhhh....that's better.
