Keith Lemon: the movie
Slated by the critics, Leigh Francis' debut movie promised little and delivered in spades.
Centring on the eponymous businessman's rise to fame via mobile phones with a lemon on the back, the problem is Lemon is so unlikeable once he hits the big time he alienates the audience.
Cameos are plentiful, as are bad gags and a morally dubious tone, while Kevin Bishop is wasted as Lemon's idiot sidekick.
Kelly Brook is one highlight of this 80 minute mess which leaves a sour note from start to finish.
