Im watching it. Its actually pretty... racist.
Matt Lucas as the Japanese teenager in their song about Martin Clunes is absolutely magic.
it's political correctness gone mad.
its fun for all the family
the funniest characters in that are the husband and wife pilots and the couple who got married at disneyland.
But generally it's just not very funny. So no surprises from Walliams & Lucas then.
there were a couple of funny bits when it wasn't being racist anyway. That bit about the frozen dog was alright.
whatcha gonna do
I mean, I know that its probably superficial- two guys dressed as a couple. But W&L usually make more of an effort than Tim and Eric who are deliberately shit about it.
we all thought it was shit.
obviously they'll be friends with Lucas and Walliams but if one of my friends produced a pile of turd like CFWM I think I'd buy them a copy of Rock Profile/ Little Britain series 1 and try remind them of when they were funny.
*Thinly veiled, I use Twitter post.
those sorts of characters and set-ups reminded me of when me and a pal at school would record little scetches on a tape recorder at lunch times.
actually, our material was probably better quality. and less tiresome with the stereotypes...AND WE WERE THIRTEEN.
pretty much every character they portrayed in this were supposed to be thick or mental anyway, regardless of where they were meant to be from... so surely if it's trying to make jokes at everyone's expense regardless of background/country or colour then it's not racist?
It was however fucking awful, worst thing they have done by miles. Also I've always said Matt Lucas is a better actor than David Walliams but the gulf in quality between the two is astounding.
we can all agree on that.
