Dave: [Sees Ferris trying to do crazy paving] What happened here?
Ferris: It's crazy paving.
Dave: This isn't crazy paving Ferris, this is just shit.
Ferris: I was trying to... you know?
Dave: You've got no artistic vision here, have you? It's just a random fucking big mess.
Ferris: It's crazy paving, you just bung slabs down.
Dave: No, I think you're focusing too much on the crazy aspect, and not enough on the paving side of it.
Ferris: Have you come round here just to have a go at my crazy paving?

A must miss movie
4 December 2004 | by mnmannionSee all my reviews

Crook and Vegas must find better vehicles than this. It is pure tack and surely such versatile comedians must recognise that total smut does not constitute comedy.

Certainly don't sit with your children or parents when watching this.

Vegas and Crook are good actors (Crook is certainly moving on from his role of "Gareth" in The Office and is destined to become a household name.

Two pints of lager and a packet of crisps are essential viewing companions when sitting through this rubbish.
