Jack Batchelor's rating of the film The Big Mouth

Very dated comedy, predictable punchlines, gags drawn out for far too long, absurdist humour of the most tame variety. Couldn't last longer than 20 minutes. Not worth the effort when Monty Python's films still draw the same depth of belly-laugh out of me, even after what must be my millionth viewing of them. I'm sure this was ground-breaking for its' time, but it hasn't endured, largely because it lacks any real wit.
