Hi, Im (insert big studio name here) and I wont release this movie and Im stupid
28 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

So here it is 2 years after Cant Buy Me Lunch has been finished and STILL no distribution? I'm growing a little concerned with our society in general when Charlies Angels 2 is welcomed with open arms and a gem like Rutles 2:Cant Buy me lunch doesnt see the light of day. This is a fantastic sequel to the classic original. All the key elements are here the interviews with all the celebrity guests (especially Gary Shandling) are hilarious! I saw this in a theater full of people and everyone seemed to genuinely enjoy it. The bits with Jimmy Fallon are a little weak but Shandling and Steve Martin are extremely funny. We need to get Idle in some more films! are you listening Harvey Weinstein?
