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

Sporadic (un)entertainment
6 April 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

One of the problems with Dead Cool is the under developed story. It tries to tie in too many story lines without fleshing them out, leaving the audience bewildered and uninterested. Several key scenes have been cut down for time restriction, leaving out plot explanations. This is especially apparent in the supernatural scenes which stand out as confusing. They are certainly not needed. All the "other worldly" plot lines are unnecessary and only distract the viewer from the story unfolding. Other unnecessary parts of this film are the CGI shots that don't do anything to unfold the story. Several actors stand out in Dead Cool, but for all the wrong reasons. There are not a lot of good actors/ actresses in it. It is all a bit wooden and gives the film a 'made for television' feel. It is lacking in script and visualisation. If you want a family comedy/drama there are thousands of better films out there, this one's neither funny nor dramatic.
