A thoroughly watchable film, well acted by the front trio of Rita Tushingham as an adolescent bride, Colin Campbell as the fast-talking lead man and Dudley Sutton as a barely-concealed queen who becomes his friend. I love the fast-paced opening of effervescent marriage and honeymoon at Butlins - unaffected and a postmodernity free backdrop for the breakdown of convention and the blossoming of genuine if more tricky friendships. It's also got a super bike race sequence - all the way to Edinburgh and back - a nicely filmed metaphor for their respective journeys out of adolescence and the true reference of the title. 6/10
