Great Great Great!
8 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Really loved this film when I saw it at the cinema and loved it even more having watched it on DVD! For me it did everything that a film like this needed to do and more. It was funny, gripping and had really well rounded characters who did a great job at really bringing the whole thing together!

I love the ensemble cast too who although large really made it feel like the film was covering a large demographic of people. Im not sure what the budget for the film was but it seemed as if the filmmakers were really getting a lot out of what i would imagine would not have been a massive budget for an independent British feature film.

All in all a great watch with a lovable cast and slick direction. for the film deserves a 10/10
