I wasted an entire Saturday afternoon watching this horrible film. Â The only reason I did not shut it off, was so I could write the review. Â I do not like Russell Brand, and this film made me not like him even more. Â The entire film is just about a drunk, rich, spoiled child who has to learn to take care of himself without the help of his nanny, and Â I just could not get into this film. Â It was supposed to be a comedy, but I just did not like it. Â Do not waste the time to rent!
