Cheers to a fantastic Brit Flick
14 January 2003 | by (Dublin) – See all my reviews

I stumbled into this film by accident at the Ballygowan Film Festival last year.

County Kilburn is essentially about a barman's last week in his job at a grotty boozer called the Waggon and Horses. Played by Ciaran McMenamin, the lead is supported by a great cast of underrated actors who take full advantage of a brilliant script.

The regulars at The Waggon... include a foul-mouthed John Bowe as Black Jack, Simon Sherlock as eighties throwback 'Eighties Billy' who has a penchant for Ford Capris, Farrahs and Fred Perry, Georgia Mackenzie as Unnatainable Sue, an affectionate retard called Basic, Rick Warden as the lead's best buddy, a love-sick elderly couple called Tourvil and Dean and a grumpy old git called Mr Bollox. There is also a wonderful cameo performance from Paul O'Grady (Lilly Savage).

A British adulterated, interpretation of Friends and Cheers, the humour is spot on and it wouldn't surprise me if it offended some people in the Vatican, but you will have to watch it to find out what I mean.

It's amazing how this film has failed to receive a theatrical release given the amount of crap which appears in UK cinemas - I think it has the potential to be the next Full Monty - maybe this somes up the sad state of the UK film industry.
