You thought Charlie Sheen (pictured left) and Lindsay Lohan (right) had hit rock bottom? Not until they agreed to star in this, they didn’t. This shoddiest of comedies starts with a worryingly haggard Lohan as herself, making a sex tape with a very unrepentant Sheen, playing himself, to the accompaniment of the Benny Hill theme.

Believe it or not, that’s the high point. It turns into a lame parody of the horror film Mama, with nods to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Paranormal Activity, Black Swan, Inception and this week’s remake of Evil Dead.

The humour is mostly about bodily functions, with vomiting, flatulence and feces to the fore.

After 70 minutes of wall-to-wall witlessness and unfunny violence – some kind of low is achieved when a baby is set on fire - the credits mercifully roll, only to stagger on with another 15 minutes of embarrassingly unfunny out-takes.
