external linkWith tons of wacky humour, this entertaining time gives Martin the chance to ham it up bigtime and he takes full advantage. There's lots of witty laughs on hand, Turner is perfect as the 'tease' wife and despite the tepid 'love story' they try and make between Martin and the brain and an extremely silly finale this is a totally watchable black comedy. 2.5/4
