In this story of how he’s burned
And the ensuing shit-storm of a level most royal.
While glamping in the mud (that feels so rough),
Jones meets American Jack (a billionaire; buff).
Or is old flame Mark her cup of tea?
Highlight: Thompson (as her OB).
Fun screwball farce re: Bridge being up the duff.
It’s discovered that Pete has an unconventional friend.
The folks who don’t understand want him penned.
In a lovely way: it’s old-fashioned …

After he takes action (preventive).
The film’s structure: inventive.
The landing recreations: mighty impressive vision.

To perfection: elevating the film beyond its weaker parts.
