Based on a true story, the tale of a cement truck driver named Danny, whose long awaited vacation is cancelled thanks to his scheming girlfriend, Trudy.

I really liked the plot about Danny Deckchair, so I just had to check it out. I expected a comedy filled of nonstop joking, but hey! It turned out to be a more romantic entertainer than I thought - in a good way! With no well known actors, this movie treats some of the most everyday subjects in life - love and career - with such perfect precision. The balance between love and comedy is close to perfect, but I feel that some more jokes or crazy excursions would have been welcome. Danny is the true king! Haven't you seen it yet and feel for something to see together with your heart of love, check this one out for real! 6/10, since I think it lacked more jokes, but judging the art of romance here, it's a pure 9.
