The man behind Trading Places and An American Werewolf In London brings together a motley crew of British comedy talent including Pegg's Spaced co-star Jessica Hynes, Tim Curry, Paul Whitehouse, Stephen Merchant and Ronnie Corbett. As an added bonus, you even get to see Michael Winner meet a sticky end.
