It Was A Load Of Crap
17 April 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I can imagine the pitch went something like this : " It`s a fresh funky comedy with some black geezer . Little bit like TRAINSPOTTING or LOCK STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS innit . Give some money to make the film . I`m a geezer "

Sorry but I think the bloke doing the pitch was a little bit naughty because IT WAS AN ACCIDENT seems to resemble something like CIRCUS or RANCID ALUMINIUM .

The main problem ( And boy is it a problem ) is a horrible , underdeveloped script . The characters and situations are incredibly silly and several scenes seem to be included simply because it seemed like a good idea at the time . There is nothing that could have saved the film from its woeful script but director Metin Huseyin hasn`t made even a token attempt to improve any potential of the film . The cast go way over the top and perhaps the worst thing about the performances is the swearing . I`ve nothing against bad language , in fact profanities uttered by characters can actually be funny or dramatic , but here it sounds crude , irritating and unconvincing . Show`s how bad IT WAS AN ACCIDENT is when I complain about the language . I also want to complain about the script ( Again ) the direction ( Again ) and the performances ( Again ). What a crap film
