Unconvinced
19 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was in this film - yes as an extra, but nevertheless I got to see it being made first hand. At the time I thought, "this is rubbish". Of course I felt sure that when the final post production was completed it would be much better.

Sadly I was wrong.

Turgid acting, a totally unconvincing plot and desperate jokes. (Oh and did I mention the awful music??!!)

My four days spent smoking cigarettes leaning on a bar holding a fake pint of lager in the old Locarno Ballroom resulted in £80 and free food. Anyone paying to see this movie in any format is down on the deal.
