A Bit Too Much Preaching
28 July 2013 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

A group of youths stand outside a liqueur store and being underage they stop a middle aged passer-by to ask if he'll go in to the store for them to buy alcohol . The middle aged man then tells them a true life story on the dangers of alcohol

America has a very strange relationship with alcohol . It's one of the very few non Muslim countries to have had a blanket ban on alcohol in the 1920s which was an absolute disaster being impossible to effectively enforce and prohibition gave birth to organised crime . Even today we hear almost amusing stories of Europeans aged in their late 20s visiting America , going in to a bar and having to go back to their hotel to get their passport because the bar tender refuses to serve them thinking they're too young . By a bitter irony it's probably easier for teenagers to buy illegal drugs in America than it is to buy alcoholic drinks

This public information film aims to inform the youth of America on the dangers of alcohol and while its heart may be in the right place it becomes so over done as to be ironic . In many ways it's similar to REEFER MADNESS . Having a moral tale to tell it's not enough for the protagonists to have a drink and merely wake up with a sore head and a feeling of morbid embarrassment - they have to wake up and find their entire lives ruined forever . Of course this has happened to some people where hey find themselves facing a murder charge where a binge drinking goes wrong . We all know someone who has ruined their life through alcohol abuse but ALCOHOL IS DYNAMITE is a bit to exaggerated to take seriously and isn't helped by the constant melodramatic music playing on the soundtrack
