Why didn't this get a release?
20 January 2008 | by matthewjgallagherSee all my reviews

I saw this in a test screening and really liked it, I've just come across it on IMDb and thought I should leave a review.

I think the producers went bust or something so it never got a distribution deal in the UK. It's such a shame as the cast are great, Ricky T and Johnny Vegas (back when he was really funny and not just 18 stone of idiot) in particular. The young kids were excellent finds as well.

The script could have done with a little longer in development and the some of gags fell short, but on the whole the characters are really funny and the whole thing is very fresh and different. The ending really warms the heart as well, without being too preachy and getting all religious.

I would watch this again and would recommend it to others too.
