Based on a Radio 4 comedy series, writer-director Williams's semi-improvised mockumentary follows the hapless efforts of amateur explorers Mark (Mangan) and Brian (Thomas) to raise consciousness about global warming. Shot in a fake vérité manner, it's a sporadically amusing adventure, in which the lead actors struggle to handle the material's awkward tonal shifts.
