    San Francisco Chronicle

    A pleasant diversion starring the always amiable Nick Frost, with Chris O'Dowd relishing his role as a slimeball. show more

    Sheri Linden The Hollywood Reporter

    Frost is a likable lead and an easy rooting interest. But his affability isn’t enough to give this silly-sweet feature the edge and dimension that would make it a memorable contribution to the subgenre epitomized by The Full Monty — comedies in which middle-aged, unassuming Brits discover their inner showman. show more

    Total Film

    A great big bear-hug of a Britcom, with rhinestones on its shirt, salsa in its heart and dick jokes up its sleeve. Something for everyone, then. show more

    Empire

    Saturday Night Fever by way of Strictly Come Dancing, Frost’s solo movie lacks the inventive madness of his Cornetto team-ups, but it’s still a heartfelt blast of fun. show more
