Bullshot's best!!
2 August 2005 | by scareyclairey2003See all my reviews

Brilliant! My husband introduced me to Captain Cwummond several years ago now and I'm so glad he did!! If you enjoy wit, slapstick, stand up and roll about on the floor laughing type humour, then you'll love this! Over the top plummy English accents and twee customs only serve to enhance the viewing delights!!

It is a film for the whole family to enjoy with some gentle adult humour included that will sail over the kids heads!

Get out there and find this film.... it will be worth it....GUARANTEED!!

In the immortal words of ....some Irish guy..... it's a cracker!!!
