2007 M Contains offensive language and sexual references.

The two series of the deadpan comedy come to a close in this sensational finale. At this point, Ricky Gervais's lowly extra, Andy Millman, has finally made some headway in the entertainment industry. Millman's sitcom, WHEN THE WHISTLE BLOWS, has been commissioned and is an outright hit.

OK but not as good as the TV series - the basic idea can't really sustain 90 minutes as opposed to the TV series 30.
