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

Simply Useless
10 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film should come with a health warning: do not watch. And there's a reason for this. It's not just because it will waste your time, but by viewing it you will give these filmmakers the belief that more dross will suffice.

The plot is boring and the characters ultra bland. The shots uninventive and the acting simply appalling.

At its best it gets a small smile. At its worse it gave children who can't act unnecessary hope. Gags worse than many a BBC3 comedy. The most cringe-worthy film since "pay it forward", which actually had a plot.

I'd plead with the producers to donate their money to charity.
