REVIEW:

After three TV seriesí and just as many live shows Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson have brought their infamous characters, Ritchie Rich and Eddie Hitler from Bottom, to the big screen. The dysfunctional due have been through a lot, theyíve been to prison, stranded on a deserted Island, had a violent confrontation with a gas man and now they are running the worst hotel in Britain.

Iím a big Bottom fan, Iíve been to most of there live shows and I always look out to see what messes Edmondson and Mayall are up to. When I heard they weíre going to make a feature based on one of my favourite sitcoms I was excited. But as with many TV tie-ins the outcome can be either great or bad and while they succeeded transferring it from TV to theatre, could they to it from TV to film?

For something that started in the earlier nineties thatís had a ten year run with the same characters was always going to be difficult to pull off. As youíd expect it has everything an episode or live performance has, over the top fight scenes, juvenile humour, swearing and plenty of innuendo, but after watching I realised they hadnít pulled it off.

What Bottom TV and Bottom live had, Guest House Paradiso severely lacked, the pungent bite of loneliness and raw dirtiness that made the characters and the shows so successful is missing in a big way. Adrian Edmondsonís character, Eddie, isnít featured nearly enough, his random witticisms are missed and he spends most of the film smiling at the camera, while Rik Mayall lacks the energy he had in earlier outings. There are a couple of nice cameos, one from Bill Nighy and a pre Shaun of the Dead Simon Pegg, but both are underused.

G.H.P is Adrian Edmondsonís directorial debut and itís not the best first time director movie Iíve seen, his own limp script lets him down, most of the jokes you can see coming a mile away and everything seemed like a Christmas special rather than a feature film.

Thankfully itís not all predictability and tiresome jokes, as both have been working together for more than fifteen years we do get a glimpse of what they are capable of as there are some hysterically funny scenes, an intercom exchange over a boiled egg, a crude comment to highly active newlyweds and the over the top vomit scenes had me roaring with laughter.

But the film still falls way short of my expectations, as a fan I want these two to succeed on every level and IĎll still look out for what they are going to do next, but something tells me I might be getting to old for this type of humour, just like Rik And Adrian.
