Comedy: The Genre to which Zero Charism Owes an Apology
25 July 2017 | by hooleydavidSee all my reviews

I watched this film without having read any reviews or knowing exactly what to expect, or even really what it was about. I have to say, it took me 2 sittings to get through from start to finish and really, I didn't enjoy this film at all.

The film is very slow paced, a bit sluggish and the story line just isn't obvious until the very end. For a comedy, I think I remember maybe one scene where I briefly cracked a smile, so I'm not sure it should be classed as as comedy.

The moral behind the story is the probably the best thing about this film, although there isn't a great deal else for it to compete with for that title.

A good insight I suppose into what life as "nerd" is like, but I'd not recommend it as a film to watch - Unless you're struggling to fall asleep. It certainly helped me with that.
