Incredibly Disappointing...
18 March 2012 | by XRoadsSee all my reviews

Well... I thought this might be a nice film to watch before going to sleep, but I was wrong... Whilst lying in my bed I couldn't shake the urge to write about how bland, meaningless and ropey this film was, so I'm here.

I love a lot of British films, films that are based on true stories and films done independently. On paper this film looked like it'd be worth a shot at the very least but it was more like a shot in the foot. I hung on, hoping it was leading to a punchline or at least something to reward the endurance of the boredom... I was hugely disappointed! The best thing about this film was the song that had the line 'It gets much better than this'... At least the person who chose the music had a sense of humour unlike the rest of 'em.

I honestly have to say this is the worst film I've ever seen! Avoid like the plague, unless you like bland, uneventful and thoughtless films.
