Liverpudlian Humour in a time of sadness
10 December 2010 | by colin_coyneSee all my reviews

THE BE ALL AND END ALL is a British comedy from Director Bruce Webb, about a couple of 15 year old school lads from Liverpool who go on holiday to a holiday caravan site, and one of the lads Robbie Wallace (played by Josh Bolt) develops a serious heart condition, and he is rushed into hospital to discover that the condition is fatal and he doesn't have long to live.

On hearing about the seriousness of his condition – Robbie is absolutely determined not to die a virgin, and pleads with his best friend Ziggy (played admirably by Eugene Hughes) to ensure that he will help him with his final wish … to get laid … with many disastrous (and funny) consequences along the way ….

This is a film full of "Liverpudlian" humour and can be quite funny (and also a bit crass on occasions) There are some able performances by other cast members also – namely Neve McIntosh who plays Ziggy's Mum Kate, Liza Tarbuck who plays Ward Nurse Tina, Bryony Seth as Sophie and Connor McIntyre who plays Robbie's Dad.

I liked, and recommend THE BE ALL AND END ALL although it should be said that some of this film works … and some doesn't … it's a bit like the emotions of the Robbie and Ziggy … swinging from humour in their escapades to the sadness with regards to the shadow of a terminal illness … which at times threatens to tear their relationship apart …
