Storyline

dead cool is the story of modern family relationships, as seen through the eyes of 15 year-old David. Six years after his dad dies in a car crash, David's mum moves in with the new man in her life. As the two families come together - complete with teenage step brothers and sisters, a crushingly acerbic granny and one feisty, American self-help guru ex-wife - David has fantasies of his father's ghost returning to disrupt the new step-family and test its survival. Written by Nick Cohen

Sharply observed comedy about extended families
13 April 2004 | by (London England) – See all my reviews

This is an amusing and feel good film with some laugh out loud scenes about the affects of being forced into an extended family. Here two parents with children try and make a fresh start. The plot is seen through the eyes of one of the children but works for all generations- Grandparents seeing their kids make fools of themselves- parents wanting the right to their own lives and kids not understanding why they can not be the center of their parents attention. Good performances from Anthony Calf, Imogen Stubbs and Steven Geller but Liz Smith, as always, is the scene stealer. Well observed - and mandatory viewing for anybody with children (or parents) considering starting a new relationship.
