Wasted attempt
8 August 2019 | by Chris_Mac_25See all my reviews

Great choice of actors to play Les Norton, completely fits the authors description of Les Norton from the novels.

Where this lost me was it's subscription to current PC culture. The original novels were rude and brash, politically incorrect and hilarious. It was a different time, before this current outrage culture emerged post social media.

The makers had a chance to make a faithful film version of the books that would have made for great viewing as well as a good nostalgia trip for those that remember not only the books but that era, before everyone had to be 'empowered'

Wasted opportunity
