Storyline

It's 1973 in Cemetery Junction, a Reading suburb. Three working class lads, best friends, are coming of age. Freddie wants to rise above his station, taking a job selling life insurance, wearing a suit and tie. Snork works at the railway station and wants a girlfriend some day. Bruce talks of leaving but seems on track to work at a factory, drink and fight, and become like his dad, in front of the telly with beer on hand; and he's trying the patience of the police officer who gets him out of jams. Freddie's job leads the lads toward a few small changes. He runs across a childhood friend, Julie, his boss's daughter who's engaged to the firm's top seller. Can the lads break out?

Trivia

The original title was "The Men at the Pru", an advertising slogan for the Prudential insurance company. During the writing of the film, the Prudential allowed Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant to use their archives for research. However, after reading the finished script, the company decided it didn't like how it was being portrayed and refused to allow the usage of their name. The new title comes from an actual area in the town of Reading, where the film takes place. See more »

Goofs

During the night club scene, the song 'I believe in miracles' was sung. This was not released until 1976. In fact, some patrons dance to disco. In the summer of 1973, there was no music genre 'disco' so any such music would have fallen upon confounded ears. See more »

Fabulous film!
19 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

I truly loved this film especially after the rubbish films I've seen of late.

It was funny and emotional from start to finish. It was nostalgic of the 70's and the music was fabulous!

Ricky Gervais didn't do the usual Ricky acting and his part wasn't overplayed. The two main characters played by Christian Cooke and Tom Hughes were very good indeed.

It had a good story line, you cared about the characters, the music was great and it was hilarious.

My money was well spent and I would recommend this film without hesitation.
