Keith Lemon: The Film - In The Press

Main News Stories About 'Keith Lemon: The Film':

What's the worst British comedy ever? My list would be topped by Sex Lives Of The Potato Men, Guest House Paradiso and Lesbian Vampire Killers, but a brave new contender is Keith Lemon: The Film.

Optimistically calculated to cash in on the success last year of The Inbetweeners Movie, this is a spin-off of an ITV2 series in which 'comedian' Leigh Francis plays Mr Lemon, a Yorkshire entrepreneur who sees himself as the new Richard Branson.

His orange tan, long blond hair and tendency to ogle buxom beauties and celebs are more redolent of Peter Stringfellow.

His desire to discuss bodily functions evokes unpleasant memories of Dr Gillian McKeith.
Nothing funny happens, and a good deal that is repulsive does, none of it describable in a family paper.

Among the glitterati are Peter Andre, Fearne Cotton and Jedward. In some inner circle of Hell, this movie will be for ever playing.
