I don't know about the rest of the movie, but that scene certainly has "Based On A True Story" written all over it.

 

When people of social acquaintance find out what I do professionally, they often ask for help with their digital camera. As I start diving into the menu, this "OMG" look of realization comes over their face and then they quickly ask for their camera back.

That used to be one of the many delights of VCR servicing years ago. A tape would be stuck in the mechanism, and the customers would come up with the most ingenious explanations for why it had to be removed instantly, on the spot.... :rolleyes: 
We built up an excellent library of copied tapes that way

To be honest, I didn't think it was all that funny. The YouTube trailer you show was about the funniest scene in the whole movie. It's like they tried to do a French Farce but set in the UK, which never really works.

 

And what's with the crappy "Video" look?! It looked to me like it was shot with an F900, I can't believe they used a Alexa Plus.

It just goes to show; you can turn out crap pictures with any camera...
