User Reviews

a good night out for the boys.
10 July 2001 | by LisaFlettSee all my reviews

I've seen some pretty unfair reviews of this film and I don't think they're justified at all. There seems to be a lot of fixation around the credibility of relationships and plots blah, blah but I found my brain negotiated it's way around that because the dialogue sort of sweeps you along. It was a bit of a guys movie, and if you liked Swingers then you'll love this and it has to be said there was much laughing in the cinema where I watched it, I was actually sitting in front an entire half row of blokes and they loved every second of it, definitely a good night out for the boys. If I had any real criticism of this film I'd say the female characters were a bit weak and any observations made about the female experience only bordered on insightful but then again that didn't bother me that much because I was fairly engaged with the rest of the film. It's got flaws, find me a film that hasn't but as I understand it this was the writer and the directors first feature and with that in mind I thought Late Night Shopping was an excellent debut for both of them and I look forward to seeing whatever they do next.
