Running time 100 minutes
One’s expectations of a film which has as its core concept the adventures of a couple of garbage collectors are likely to be low and Garbo, the sole directorial effort of Ron Cobb, a computer graphics designer, delivers abundantly on all fronts.
Opening with an amusing parody of RAF war films with garbage trucks taking the place of fighter planes on their dawn raid, it's downhill all the way thereafter as stand-up comedy duo, Los Trios Ringbarkus (Neill Gladwin and Stephen Kearney), who claim writing credits along with Patrick Cook, take us through a witless comedy that relies on physical gags that would bore a 9 year old of reasonable intelligence.
