Terrible movie. Hard to watch
3 January 2017 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I was a big fan of the UK Office show. I had high hopes when they said they were going to reboot the main character David Brent in a catch- up movie to see where he was at way down the line from when the original series ended.

I found the movie hard to watch. I didn't get any laughs from it at all. It was pretty awkward the whole way through the movie. David is pretty much down and out and believes he's doing well as a musician along with others who really don't want to be there. They are only doing it to further their own career because David is paying.

I wished I never saw this movie now. I would have hoped to at least see David cross paths with his old pal Gareth.. None of the original cast was in it.

So in short, do yourself a favour and skip this one.
