Simon Pegg Plays unlikable Character in Unwatchable Movie
Simon Pegg's talents are as utterly wasted in the making of this as the viewer's time is in watching it. I love Simon Pegg's work almost in its entirety and my reservation lies entirely with this subpar piece of work. Pegg does an excellent job of portraying a character who is so utterly loathsome that watching that portrayal is loathsome. There is no redemption earned for watching in its entirety, just a fervent wish that time travel was invented so that this screenplay would never have been greenlighted. Don't waste any precious moments of their childhood by letting your kids watch this movie. Watch any other Simon Pegg movie. This one was the ritual sacrifice that made all of his other successes possible.

Not for kids.
The sexual content in this film is shocking. There is full frontal nudity of a transexual stripper both breasts and penis that lasts for over a minute. It is wildly inappropriate for kids of all ages and I believe should be NC-17 for that scene alone.
