Check out the blatantly shill review on IMDB. Someone's panicking.
Sweary chef Gordon Ramsay looks a likely Razzie candidate after his film debut attracted just 17 cinemagoers in its opening week. Romcom Love's Kitchen opened in the UK last Friday, and the Sun reckons it took a lean 121 quid in five cinemas, or "£1 more than the cost of a meal at one of his posh restaurants". The movie …
Why is it Gordon's turkey? He was only in the film as a cameo, though he seemed to have difficulty pulling off a Gordon Ramsay impersonation. Yes the film is utter cack though I would blame the director and script writer and the real actors rather Ramsay,
Anonymous cause I don't want anyone to know I went to see it, well was dragged along by the missus, honest 'guv.
* Dougray Scott
* Simon Callow
* Peter Bowles
* Lee Boardman
(okay, the last two are pushing the point a bit)
I think they've shot themselves in the foot by featuring the wanker Ramsey so much in the trailer, it seems a fairly standard British rom-com but people will stay away as nobody in their right mind likes Gordon Ramsey.
Lester Haines .. i should have known .. :)
Though you DID give us fair warning before we clicked the link , we were taken by surprise and all got sick to our stomachs watching the trailer.Result : floor needs refinishing , cost , 75 quids.
This is really a stinker.No wonder noone wants to see it. A waste of perfectly good film imho.
BTW Lester : we're sending the cleanup bill.As usual , amusing and quite refreshing.
I need a stiff drink to keep me from shaking.
It is more likely to be a waste of either flash cycles or hard drive swooshes. Shooting on actual film these days is an increasingly esoteric pastime, given the quality of cameras like the RED EPIC (or however the hell you write it).
People do still refer to "footage", though, amusingly.
Megaphone due to the RED EPIC. PARDON?
Those who actually went obviously liked it an awful lot, because 30 percent of them have posted generally positive (and in one or two cases gushing) reviews on IMDB. A couple of the others kept themselves busy by chiding the Guardians reviewer for his negativity.
Whoever said no publicity is bad publicity might have changed their mind if they'd seen that trailer.
It seems the Sun even struggled to pad it out to the six whole sentences of the article. I mean seriously, a national 'newspaper' using quotes from random Tweets and YouTube comments to substantiate some 'news'.
Oh well, I suppose if you're reading the Sun for anything that resembles news then you really are doing it wrong.
The good reviews on IMDB seem to mostly be from America wher they lap up British romantic comedies like they were fecking Shakespeare. All it needs is a charmingly befuddled Hugh Grant walking past in the background and would win an Oscar.
£121!!! Those 1970's ads before the trailers for a flock wallpapered indian restaurant not 5 minutes from this movie theatre saw a better return.
