It's alright. Neither here nor there.
8 March 2017 | by chrismonkeeSee all my reviews

I watched it when I was 18. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

I hadn't gotten truly wasted up to that point. I went on to live a life, getting properly wasted as often as possible in my 20's.

I watched it again when I was about 35, I thought it was crap.

I was thinking about this film the other day, so it cannot be that bad. Made an impression on me at least.

I am 46 now. I no longer get wasted. I'd watch it again, for free, off the TV if it came round.

Be safe, kids. Keep it legal.
