It was bad, really bad

I like Steve Coogan and was excited to see the film Hamlet 2 on this list.

The film was reserved from my local library with ease and my wife and I settled in for what we thought would be an overlooked gem.

What we saw was completely the opposite of what we expected.

I really think this project was originally written with Martin Short in mind, such was the exaggerated gesturing and facial expressions of Coogan. It was bad, really bad.

The musical number "Rock Me Sexy Jesus" scarred my wife as it had the line "Jesus' swimmer's build."

In fact, the best part of the film was the song that was over the closing credits. A classic song from the 80's. Enjoy the best part of Hamlet 2.
