Sniggering behind the bike sheds taken to its logical conclusion. As film it's grubbily perfunctory, as comedy fitfully amusing but as a record of a marvellous partnership about to disintegrate, rather tragic. There's some wonderful invention in and around the Tourette-ian need to swear, which like any shock tactic only needs topping the next time to continue the fix. Comedy and melancholy are not strange bedfellows.
