I actually quite enjoyed it...
15 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

No it's not The Godfather, but it passed the time. Sure some of the characters were pretty unpleasant, and I didn't care that much about those that weren't, and the ending was weak. BUT I did think it was quite well observed: it rang true. The obsessions and insecurities and instabilities of a gang of mates slowly growing up is clearly not a new subject, but there weren't any characters that I didn't believe in, and I thought the script worked. The childrearing plot didn't really convince, but the general métier of discussion between the actors was very believable and occasionally quite witty. Made me wonder what kind of rubbish I spout when I'm drunk.
