Is this just wrong????
Dead and Breakfast Movie

Granted I'm on dial up at the moment and can't watch the trailer but it seems to be just a cheap rip off of our favorite movie!
No Offence to any of our American webby's but,
it seems to me that any kind of British humour the Americans touch gets all sullied up.
Mr Bean anyone???

Quite, and AICN isn't exactly the most independent and reliable of sources.  If some guy in the distributor's marketing department chooses to use this quote to drum up business that says nothing about the quality of the film.

That would be true to say, the only thing I could add to that is that the website art work is very SotD looking.

nah someone further back had a point - britain has brought itself up on comedy i.e monty python - the british mentality wouldn't be the same if it wern't for these geni-i (is that the plural of genius?)

It's true, we have whole generations of ppl who have this just bent sense of humour, and I'll add Aussies to that cause we always had more Brit humour than American. John Cleese has a lot to answer for. God love him!!! Which is probably why the funny is more prolific in England.
Personally, and this is not about which country is better, I find that an awful lot of American humour when done with that same bent style simply just doesn't work.
However, there are so many American comedians and comdeic actors that I just love i.e Wil Ferrel, Robin Williams, Duston Hoffman, Owen Wilson, Jimmy Fallon, Jack Black and Tom Hanks even.

I Heart Huckabees was brilliant! As was Napolean Dynamite.
They're definately in that 'alternative comedy' genre.

Anyways, I think it's unproductive to say one is better that the other, kind of silly.
I do however find it annoying when major studios see something like Shaun succeed and then try and re-do it to cash in. That really shits me. And it's all kool to say...'Well just don't watch it'...the thing that shits me about that is...so many other ppl will watch it and judge Shaun and RomZomCom by it!

I don't know this but given that the film has come out just over a year after Shaun wouldn't that mean that it was in production before Shaun was released - that's not really going to be a cash-in is it? huh.gif (although they may well be cashing-in on how well Shaun did to boost the sucess of their own movie after the fact . . .).
