Hi fifi! Yes finally!

I enjoyed the film as a satire more than the book, but both are different experiences and I liked both equally. In terms of satire the book had so much more exposition of Stelfox vileness in inner dialogue that it was almost too self gratuitous to work as a satire, for me. But the film really worked not only as a comedy but also in portraying these individuals satirically! It totally took the piss out of them and seemed to have more fun with itself! And that was more fun for me!

I thought it was OK, but much preferred the book. I quite liked the narration as a way of linking scenes, made it simple to follow what was happening. I found I missed aspects of the book - the group the Songbirds were so well described, for instance, and were so hilarious in the book, and just came over as stupid and vacant on screen. The reason the singer with the Lazies disliked Stelfox so much was glossed over, as was the apalling Rage. It was just toned down a bit much, for me.
Not enough Ross - there was more of him in the book! And why the mop top - Ross is described as having a crew cut!
I'm glad I watched it, just because of Damien but I can't see myself ever watching it again.
