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

Confused and confusing Misfire
22 December 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While this film presents itself as a comedy drama it is neither funny nor dramatic. It makes the common mistakes like trying to say too much and be too clever and inevitably fails to achieve either. The initial failure is in the script which never finds a focus, and is endlessly wordy without being witty . The Direction is however worse driving whatever might of been made of the script into the ground. The cast no two of whom appear to be reading from the same page act like a lot of scared rabbits caught in a cars headlights waiting to be run over. In short its the sort of mess thrown together with tax shelter money that gives British Cinema a bad name. While the time and effort required to make it has been wasted forever you can save some time and effort of your own by switching channels in the unlikely event that this drivel makes a sale and turns up on your TV.
