Would you settle for Improbable?
25 May 2009 | by escapingethanSee all my reviews

We bought this movie for a laugh from a shop called poundland. We were up for a laugh and reading the back cover we knew we wouldn't be disappointed.

It was everything we expected, bad acting, bad script and terrible storyline. The story seemed to focus around a calculator and we gather that theft of these inexpensive items was a very big thing in the 80s. The actors, Kevin Dillon, Christopher Gartin and Bruce Keller were the token strengths of this movie.

We were so inspired by this coming of age story that we immediately set to work on a remake. The catchphrase NO BIG DEAL will live on because of this film!
