Funny. Which, on average, seems an easier accomplishment for British comedies when compared to their US counterparts. Paul Dood's Deadly Lunch Break offers a mix of different flavors, but they all work pretty well and the variety of comedy styles makes sure that it never gets too predictable or boring.

Paul Dood still lives with his mom. Together they have worked out a musical routine that will hopefully make him famous one day. Paul enters a talent competition, but he has a terrible time getting there and when he and his mom finally arrive, the audition is over. And his day is about to get worse still.

It's nice to see a comedy go from goofy to offensive, or from dramedy to black in just a manner of minutes. The actors do a great job, the premise is amusing, the jokes are more hit than miss. It's a very easy watch, never too demanding, well-paced and funny throughout. Very fine comedy filler.
