I've been there yesterday. Could not finish whole play, left at first interval. Humour is very cheap and repetetive. Whole play is mostly about how they hit a wall with their head, or how one actor fails to remember his line.

Worst play I've seen so far.

Won't give anything away except book seats in the Stalls preferably row D to (H) H12 H13 loads of leg room very

comfortable with no one behind and an unrestricted view of the stage.

Its 24 hours later and we're still laughing also last night we had an unexpected marriage proposal on stage curtesy of ITVs Take Me Out.

We were delighted to get last minute tickets. It was excellent from start to finish. Athough you knew anything might go wrong/not work and so on, each new mishap was unexpected, clever and a a joy to behold. Well deserves the West End and all its awards!

I saw this show last November on a two week holiday. It was the best part of my trip. I laughed from beginning to end. The timing of the cast was outstanding for ongoing action. A must see for anyone who is in London.

OMG! This was one of the best nights out in a loooong time! It has now been weeks since I'd seen the play and I still giggle when I remember how hilarious, sweet and charming it was! Thank you for putting together such wonderfully light and full of fun play! Amazing acting and totally hilarious all time through. I laughed to tears! Highly recommend this play to everyone :) Enjoy!

Exceptionally good, I loved it and my 9 year old daughter loved it. An exceptionally funny experience. I will be going to see the bank robber one now!

A genuine laugh from start to finish. Could not recommend highly enough.

"Good God! I needed that."

I can honestly say this was the funniest play I have ever seen and so clever. The timing was brilliant and all the cast made it seem easy although it must have been extremely difficult. Will certainly try to see the next play about a bank robbery.

Saw this play last year just by chance as didn't expect a Sunday performance still chuckling now.

One of the funniest if not the funniest play I had ever seen re-visiting later this year and taking making my son can't wait!!!!!

It's definitely a must see and have recommended to all my friends and the ones that have seen it highly recommend it.
