Funny British film about 2 middle class lovers travelling and unravelling. Comedy, murder, madness, and the English way of life! Who could want for more?

This is one wacky film from the UK, about two people traveling with their trailer and beginning to commit random acts of murder. You won't like the two protagonists. Still, once you are used to the gratuitous violence, you may still find this film unique and interesting.

Ugh, not a comedy. Not funny. Disturbing--belongs in horror category.

It would be nice to say this was about the gradual downfall of two emotionally unstable people but it's more like the mundane escapades of a pair of psychopaths and that's where the absurd dark humour comes in. Much more subtle and slow than comparable films like Shaun of the Dead or Natural Born Killers.

Only the Brits could pull this off. I requested this based off the other reviewers' comments and it doesn't disappoint.

The dark humor worked juxtaposed with the road trip concept.

Wow, left me stunned....not sure WHAT to think 😁. Very odd but humor does come through.

Thoroughly entertaining dark, quirky horror/comedy about two people trying to have a "nice" holiday. Dialogue is quick, witty and downright hilarious (if British humor is your thing, that is.) Balancing out the morbid bits are some truly breathtaking wide-angle shots, courtesy of cinematographer Laurie Rose.

Normally love British comedy, even some of the dark stuff (like Keeping Mum with Maggie Smith) but the blood pulsating and gushing out of their first (unintentional) victim after the first five minutes put us right off. Pushed the eject button before the blood thirst went into full throttle. Not our cup of tea.

Definitely a very strange, entertaining and disturbing movie. At first I was enjoying the story believing the concept was to kill off anyone who pisses you off such as the guy lecturing about picking up the poop with your hand when they had no bag. But then it seemed to be just anyone they felt like. Think they should have stuck to the concept as it made more sense to me and would have made the movie have more of a point to the story then just them being odd.

Excellent movie ! Great British storytelling with offbeat characters, A humorous, psychological thriller. Out of the 6 movies I watched (or tried to watch) this week, this was by far the best. We were looking forward to seeing World's End and though it is highly rated and did start out well, it fell apart 20 minutes in to it. Loved Sightseers; I would gladly give it 4 or 5 stars.
