Moments of brilliance
10 November 2015 | by (The World) – See all my reviews

I loved the book. The book is laugh-out-loud funny. The problem with this cinematic adaptation is that there are only a few laugh-out-loud moments. Tone is the problem. The opening sets up the tone as dark and unpleasant and the main character as thoroughly unlikeable. We have to spend an hour and a half with this guy? It's like having to sit beside a racist drunk on a night bus. But it's hard to not like Nicholas Hoult (and the scathing honesty of his character) and the film did grow on me

  • perhaps like a tumour. There are moments of brilliance and a few


great lines (no pun intended) but ultimately the buzz doesn't quite feel worth it.
