Storyline

Angus the fluffy cat retains its dignity even in a crazy Eastbourne family, unlike them. Eldest daughter Georgia is completely besotted with 'Stiff Dylans' band hottie Robbie, who just moved in from London and helps run an organic groceries shop with his brother Tom, whom her best friend Jas has the hots for. Peter Dyer calls Georgia his best ever kissing-course pupil, but she ignores him and later the brothers' other classmate Dave the Laugh. Robbie was considering to dump haughty Lindsay, but reconsiders given the immature brat's apparent cruelty. Thus manipulative Georgia keeps changing her mind about a grand birthday party and her father's career opportunities as engineer in New Zealand, while mother seems to flirt with hunky interior decorator Jem.

Cheesy as hell and full of cliches but enjoyable
22 June 2018 | by shannen-l-cSee all my reviews

First things first, Angus, Thong and Perfect Snogging isn't going to win any awards for being the best movie of all time and objectively, it's pretty damn awful, but I still enjoyed watching it.

It's easy to watch, stupidly funny and everything you'd expect from a typical teenage chick-flick/comedy made in the noughties. The cliches are unbearably cringe and the stereotypes are all wrong (your typical plain girl Jane gets the best looking guy in school and in the process butts heads with his pretty blonde girlfriend that is by default a brat) but this isn't a movie that should be taken seriously. It's definitely not a realistic take on what it's like to be a teenage girl since it's over-invested in those teenage girl stereotypes from American movies - late night sleep-overs, bitchiness, naivety, boy obsessed etc. On that note, considering this movie was British, it didn't feel very British at all and the behaviours of the characters and general feel of the movie felt more American than British (the only British elements to the movie were the accents and the setting).

However, this movie works if you're looking to switch your brain off and have a few giggles. It is feel-good and improved my mood, so for me, that's what earns it the rating I've given it.
