2003 Certificate: 15


Comic veteran Mel Smith's broad comedy tells the tale of maverick bowls supremo Cliff Starkey (Paul Kaye) and his battle against the establishment (Torquay Lawn Bowls champion James Cromwell)... and the Australian champions. Look out for a star-making performance from Johnny Vegas as his booze-fuelled buddy and Vince Vaughn as a predatory American sports agent.
