This was on the telly and I had no intention of watching it but as it turns out it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
It doesn't take itself seriously, has some typical Will Ferrell humour and Steve Coogan gets an outing. I wouldn't be rushing to watch it again but I'm not sorry I saw it either.
I WANT to like this film, given that I'm crazy about guinea pigs, but that very fact made me pretty mad with all the depictions of poor husbandry and generally bad animal care in this film. Yes, I know it isn't real, but I also know that kids copy what they see on screen and I pity the animals that were bought as a result of this film.
