Real Feel Good University Musical Film With The Requisite Happy Ending - Sort Of
23 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I should state that the majority of the vote above is for the excellent soundtrack.

Set in the early eighties; following the lives of a bunch of young university students who sing together in their own 'On The Roof' club. It follows their lives throughout the years, occasionally meeting up for a sing along and a good old British natter.

All in all, the film is watchable, albeit you will appreciate it more if you are a fan of accapella music - It really is excellent. In short, you might be better off investing in a copy of the soundtrack rather than the film itself. Worth watching if you're at a loose end.
