User Reviews

 
Brilliant comedy - not suitable for all audiences
21 July 2011 | by Ramsingh96See all my reviews

Anuvahood is a brilliant comedy film for teens and young adults. The humour is mainly aimed towards 15-20 year olds. Adam Decon is a hilarious main charter and it is good that the film doesn't try to make London look like a crap-hole where everyone is a gun-toting idiot. I think that some older generations will not find this film too funny, due to the 'slang' used and the type of humour. Overall this film is a good high quality urban comedy with tons of funny references - I would recommended this films to anyone. - Funny Characters - Funny References - 8/10

Sorry this is my first review I hope it was okay :)
