    Until I viewed films like Up 'N' Under, Honest, Fat Slags (Thank you for reviewing this gag inducing turd), and (like you said) most British sex comedies, I was a self professed Anglophile.
    The only equal I can think of in American terms to some of these movies is Fred and/or the Fred movies. Horrible, over accentuated characters and rough, awkward sex scenes (FOR KIDS!) all around.

    I'm not ready to give up watching British entertainment, but films like this make it damn hard to defend British cinematic releases.

    Good work as always Mr. Buck. I am attempting to put together a review show that takes a lot after Projector. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on Les Miserables.

    I think Todd talked about this phenomenon. Mostly about pop songs, but it can also apply to movies. Unlike the US, Britain's a smaller and much more narrow demographic, and US films typically only get made if the execs think it'll have broad appeal. Lacking both those factors, you can see why movies like this would be more common there.

    You have to remember that "US movies" usually means "Hollywood movies". It's actually very fascinating how a particular medium grows to be so big and becomes so centralized. It'd be pretty weird if the same happened to, say, video games, that alongside the grassroots and medium-sized productions there would be this one, physical place where most of the magic happens and what'd become pretty ubiquitous with the medium as a whole.

    I think people don't even realize how little range Hollywood movies have when compared to music or videogames or books, I know I don't. In any of those mediums I think we get Cabin in the Woods's and Tim Burton's Batmans ever so often that they're just commonplace.

    Of course there's a reason for how things are and I'm not accusing movies of anything. The production values just don't come from nothing.

    Yeah, centralization's another factor. For good or bad, Hollywood pretty much controls what gets made in the US.

  • Trencher
    Okay so this is a skippable movie then.

    will you do a review for Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger

    I am interested in the movie because of David Tennant

    I think they wanted to be like the Inbetweeners, but failed due to the fact that all the characters in that are in six-form and are a mess of hormones anyway, these lot look around their mid 20's or some shit and at least in Inbetweeners only one character was constantly as you describe these people.. hell he seems subtle compared to these lot!

    It's sad because the Carry On Films were (if done to death by the end) brilliant: Modern Sex Comedies just don't get it.

    Thinking "British horror-comedy about werewolfs" made me want to rewatch "Dog Soldiers"(2002) with Kevin McKidd! That was really good low-budget werewolf flick!

    Dog soldiers! Best werewolf flick ever! No memorable characters, not much of a plot, just 90 minutes of awesome!

    Hey that sea side town that’s falling apart is my home town Largs! I thought some of those scenes looked familiar the funny thing is that this wasn’t even mentioned in the local paper that’s how bad it is and nothing ever happen here and I mean nothing.

    Of course he didn't like it. It had to do with itty-bitty sex and these privat parts he doesn't seem to like too much. :-D

    Not that the movie doesn't look bad, but Brainy here seems really the wrong person to deal with sexual things above PG-13 situations.

    Weird. England has Es-sex, Sus-sex, and even Middle-sex, yet still fail utterly at making sex comedies.

    Weird.

    At least they do make the occasional memorable gangster-film.

    Question: if there was so little advertising for the movie, where did you find the footage for this vlog? Thanks.

    They did eventually release a trailer and one clip. There's also been a rough sales promo trailer doing the rounds for the months.

    My family and I have been brutally hunted by a bowl of corn flakes for over six years! It's no laughing matter!

    So basically this seems to be a bad year for British comedies on film.

    Hey Film Brain, maybe they were trying to reach for the Twilight crowd? Maybe? Not sure if Twilight is playing in Britain yet, but that's my guess of why it was released this month. Since Twilight is so popular, tickets could get sold out, forcing the Twihards to buy a ticket for Love Bite. Most Twihards I know are Team Jacob, so it makes sense. I know other films that did something similar. Of course, it being bad had something to do with it. I kinda wish you just said the ending, because now I'm tempted to watch it to find out, but I don't want to watch it because nothing annoys me more than sex-addicted guys! Damn you curiosity! Damn you!

    Good Review Mathew (I'm really sorry if I missplet your name!!), just to let you kow the actor who plays Eargon, is/was in Downton Abby (Yes I live in London, England).

    OK, now I wanna know what the ending is as I am a big werewolf fan myself, and I am curious what could have ruined it so badly for Film Brain. Can someone spoil it for me, as I have no intention of watching it...
