Yeah...very much so. In fact it doesn't really compare. The girls are only lipstick lesbians at best and just writhe. Apparently that's what lesbians do. Writhe. In nighties.

You'd be better with Requiem pour un Vampire, which I saw last year on one of my semi-legendary Monster Nights. Now that's weird.

My thoughts entirely, she's just taken over from 'Wisest Man in The Universe' in the execrable The Demons in My Head in the Best Character Name In a Crappy Movie Lifetime Achievement Award Hall of Fame category.

This film just goes from strength to strength. I've just received a text from O2, as part of their 12 days of Christmas iTunes giveaway, offering me the chance to download the entire movie for free. No thanks.

Perhaps if he wins it three times he gets to keep it. Not looking forward to Doctor Who with him in it this weekend.

The only consolation is that ubiquity soon leads to obscurity. Where is Tony Slattery these days?

Wow: Anthony Declan James "Tony" Slattery. Do you think PJ and Duncan were named after him?

Slattery did that Kingdom programme with Fry and also appears in the Direct Line ads (again, featuring Fry). I'm assuming it's SF being a pal from years back, in support to Slattery's many issues (mostly bipolar).

When Fry did his documentary on manic depression a while back, Slattery was on that, too.

Is that Slattery in the Direct Line ads? I thought it was Paul Merton.

I remember Slattery following Fry too when he did This is David Lander, a mock investigative journalism series which I liked, after Fry did the first series This is David Harper, but couldn't do the second. Or was it the other way around?
