Michael Winterbottom's jaunty Paul Raymond biopic stars Steve Coogan as the billionaire property baron, strip-club impresario, and girly-mag publisher.

There is some Alan-Partridge-does-porn fun to be had along the way, but Winterbottom's gossipy romp is frustratingly superficial. If Raymond had any deeply-held views on pornography and feminism, or any flair and ambition as a businessman, there's no sign of them here.
