Andy (Brydon) is a struggling actor who has never quite reached the success of his first role as Romak in sci-fi series Children Of Castor. When he finds himself as a hotel porter he decides it time to go on that fan-club cruise he's been putting off for a while. Whilst there he meets Nick (Coogan), his co-star from the TV series. Nick is now a Hollywood success staring in Sherlock Holmes...In Miami. This is the story of the cruise and the surprising events that happen along the way. Written by Chryme

When will we learn the lesson of Potato?
6 April 2007 | by dooferoaksSee all my reviews

A great film, from the writer of Preston Front, which is also a TV Series (well 3 of them) worth getting.

The Extras are excellent, Coogans Runner gives an insight into how it was made, there is a complete script from an episode of The Children of Castor, and some good stills with funny captions, and the commentary is excellent.

David Walliams is at his creepy best, as are the rest of the cast, and while poking fun at Sci-Fi fanatics, they aren't really the saddest character in this film, but you will have to watch!

It's not bust a rib funny, but genuinely warm and the type of comedy that can probably only be done in Europe.
