    A charming inoffensive film that features one of the best prison-based musicals of the life of Admiral Nelson.

    A gang of crooks make use of musical loving warden to escape prison. Director of The Full Monty tries to replicate the success of the previous film by making another using more or less the same formula. The outcome is not as successful, with predictable plot development including a love affair between the lead crook and a pretty anger-management counelor, and awkward use of its setting., which makes the whole thing look shallow.

    It's a shame about the story because the British cast assembled for this rom-com in an offbeat setting is very good.

    Dull and boring. Standard rom-com. Standard Nesbitt. Not much of anyone else.

    Sweet film. Not a movie that will be with me for all time but I was fairly entertained for its duration. Bill Nighy and Timothy Spall alone are worth the admission ticket. Do not expect another Full Monty and if you can do that you will be entertained.

    Good cast who perform well, but are limited by an average script. It's a good way to pass the time, but I'm unlikely to seek this movie out again to watch it... Even though the Nelson musical was written by Stephen Fry!

    What an entertaining find this was! Sure at times the plot is predictable and some sub plots are not fully fleshed out, perhaps they should've been axed all together...but on the whole Nesbitt and Williams carry the movie and it is a comedy with enough drama that invites you to see what happens. A fun flick!

    Between a 5/10 and 6/10, the intent is almost exactly the same as The Full Monty. All that's missing is the spontaneity, originality and delight.
