Top British Nostalgia!

I never usually write reviews, but I really think this movie needs more credit!

I grew up in the 90s and this movie sums it up perfectly! From getting drunk with your friends and trying to get into places with no back up plan, whilst underage, to having a laugh with your friends whilst dealing with issues at home! There were serious elements to the film, whilst being really lightheaded and it left me feeling really happy and craving a adventure!

I thought the film was shot really well, and acted brilliantly! Overall just a all round awesome film, with an EPIC soundtrack...
