A good start for a new director
28 June 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I love comedy so much I'm willing to travel across London at 10:30 am to see

this one. I did laugh - not as much as I should've but that's the producer's mistake for putting on a screening at this unfunny hour. Really great premise of pulling together a group of comedy losers at an 'alcohol re-education seminar for convicted drunk drivers' and some wonderful characterization, especially the stoned slacker 'Mark' played brilliantly by Mark Devenport.

The reason I made the extra effort to see this movie was that it said it was

improvised, it wasn't. Had the team realized sooner, that you can't easily use the power of impro in this medium, they'd've written a better script that the initial idea suggested. Shot on DV for reasons which even after the Q&A with the

writer/director/producer/editor et all were never explained, the film suffers for it. The DP didn't pull his weight, pity, he gave us TV not cinema.

This is a promising writer/director and although he says he has no ideas

himself, he obviously knows where to get them. He'll have learnt a great deal making this film and his next film will benefit from it.

Bring on the next one.
