Crass and witless sex comedy Laid in America casts British YouTube stars KSI (opens in new tab) and Caspar Lee (opens in new tab) as a pair of foreign-exchange students frantically trying to lose their virginity on their final night in the United States. The duo’s quest is truly hapless, but as the irritating pair stumble from one mishap to another – including getting kidnapped by a wannabe gangster and winding up at a masked sex party - the filmmakers’ efforts to generate even a half-way decent laugh from their exploits are even more desperate.

Certificate 15. Runtime 86 mins. Directors Sam Millman, Peter Vass

Laid in America debuts on Sky Cinema Premiere on Thursday 27 July. Available on Blu-ray & DVD from Universal.

A film critic for over 25 years, Jason admits the job can occasionally be glamorous – sitting on a film festival jury in Portugal; hanging out with Baz Luhrmann at the Chateau Marmont; chatting with Sigourney Weaver about The Archers – but he mostly spends his time in darkened rooms watching films. He’s also written theatre and opera reviews, two guide books on Rome, and competed in a race for Yachting World, whose great wheeze it was to send a seasick film critic to write about his time on the ocean waves. But Jason is happiest on dry land with a classic screwball comedy or Hitchcock thriller.
