I did not like it much, yeah. Same with The holy Grail and Erik the viking is just unbearable.
Those are always kind of stuck in between absurdity and realism, often resulting in pure silliness, in a cheap "sweded" movie style, jokes are stretched way too long (e.g. biggus diccus), so it hits hardly any note right for me.
But i like Clockwise or A Fish Called Wanda so i won't stay away from British comedies only because i "dislike" the most famous, imho very average, though not at all bad, ones.
