Surprisingly enjoyable

The result is this pulverisingly unfunny and vacuous two-hour gauntlet run of non-tertainment.

It’s a badly shot one-joke movie that sits there and goes thud.

The movie is not a disaster, just weirdly pointless.

The votes are in, and it’s official: this largely unfunny paean to Eurovision is a waste of some serious talent. At least some of the songs are decent.
