Storyline

Keith Lemon (Leigh Francis) is preparing to take his invention, the securipole, which he has been attempting to lift off the ground for twenty years, to a business convention in London. Meanwhile, his girlfriend Rosie (Laura Aikman) has discovered that she is pregnant, but due to Keith being away, instead confides in his best friend, Dougie (Kevin Bishop). At the convention, the securipole fails to attract any big investor attention, and back at home, an order of 1,000,000 securipoles arrives, much to Rosie and Dougie's dismay. Realising that his invention may never be successful, and that he now owes Evil Steve (Leigh Francis) a ton of money for the securipoles, Lemon decides to stay in London, and takes the advice of fellow businessman Kushvinder (Harish Patel), and accepts the gift of a new style mobile phone that Kushvinder has invented. Attempting to turn the gift into his next money-making scheme, Lemon accepts an offer to appear on David Hasselhoff's prime time television chat ... Written by Anonymous

wow...
24 August 2012 | by darkness_is_your_allySee all my reviews

I had low expectations going into this film, yet I was hoping to be surprised as I usually enjoy watching celebrity juice and I know Leigh Francis can be funny. However bad expectations don't cut how bad this really was. To me, I see this film as a massive money grab of the whole teenage demographic, as this tends to be the character on TV that most adolescents are talking about and find hilarious on his panel show "celebrity juice". So the studios must have thought, "what should we do with a massive character on British Telly, I know, have him make a film that every one would empty their wallets to see on the big screen and we'll earn the box office a ton of money". This film has been purely made to take money, because if this were pitched as a serious film idea, without Keith Lemon being a famous character, this film would have (should have) been rejected because of how poorly written the script was. Most of the jokes (said verbally) are re-hashed from celebrity juice, for instance "bang tidy", "smash your back doors in" and "oooosh", but because I have heard it before, it has now just become repetitive and tiresome, and left me sighing each time the phrases were repeated. Right, next up, the acting, all the people cast in this film, were not actors! They were just famous people from British TV, who were either friends with Leigh, or put there, again, to attract more people to see it, and all the people who were actors in this film, (Kelly Brook, David Hasslehoff, Verne Troyer, Laura Aikman) either had a bad day at the office or they simply are not good enough actors to get roles in decent films, so they chose a poorly written, money grabbing film! Now we move onto the story, a predictable mess of unsatisfactory comedy, that at times I found myself wishing that certain scenes were cut from the movie, these were mainly scenes where we are meant to feel emotional for Keith, but no, I did not give a single care for this character, or any of the others for that matter. The gags fell flat, and were very predictable and frankly just an excuse to be crude, however a couple of jokes made me laugh for a few seconds, but nothing that flawed me, just stereotypes and bo'selecta references making me chuckle for a very short period of time. This film to me is a prime example of studios dumbing down films just to make money, and they don't need to because audiences are a lot more clever than they think, and instead of having a clever blockbuster to end the summer season, we get this atrocious mess of a film that has no pay off, no likable characters, awful soundtrack, bad actors, a terrible script, and a predictable story, 85 minutes was too long, please god may there not be a sequel. If you want good British humour, stick to the inbetweeners or peep show and forget all about this film. My screening, on day of release was very empty, and I hope it stays that way round the UK. You may have to see it to believe it, but you will be disappointed with this film, even if you are a fan of Keith Lemon.
