You're playing it wrong, Lee. Is it in the wrong key or something?
No, I'm not I'm playing the same key as always.
Well, if you're playing in the same key as always, you're playing in the wrong key as always.

A must for Madness fans everywhere, others can do as the title suggests
Ultimately, a film for fans, which is why I give this 8 out of 10, because I am a huge Madness fan and always have been. Essentially a low budget bio-pic of the 'Nutty Boys' origins as people and as a group. The acting obviously isn't great but there are some nice touches and funny moments along the way. Of course, it is the music which carries this film along, Madness fans will love it but I don't think it would be everyone's cup of tea.
