Shaun's a lucky boy - growing up he's had the right education, parents that loved him and he's never been short of cash. But as he gets older, he finds he doesn't fit into this world, especially with the self-righteous kids at his posh private school. Deliberately deceiving his family, he enrols at his cousin's college where he discovers an untouched world of girls, parties and excitement. Desperate to make a name for himself, he tries to impress the top girl, Chrissy, by holding a party for her at his mansion. But all he manages to do is trash the place and even destroy his dad's prized Lotus! He's left with two weeks to find £20,000 before his parents get back from holiday and his dad goes tribal. He devises a plan to make some quick money, but he's going to have to risk everything and tell a whole lot of lies to the people he loves most. Will he try and get away with it and be the top boy he always wanted to be, or will he come clean and face the music? When things get out of hand.... Written by Anonymous

This film is proper dred. Nuff to get ya vexed, blood!
7 October 2015 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

Directed, Written and Starring Femi Oyenerian (with some help from Nick Walker and Darwood Grace) who had a smaller role in 2 of the greatest British dramas of the 00's 'Kidulthood' and 'Adulthood'.

And he also had a role in the (much much much... Did I say much? well much) funnier comedy 'Anuvahood (2011)' of which I thought this movie 'It's A lot' would be similar to but really wasn't.

Well I guess in a sense it was, if you take away everything that was funny about 'Anuvahood' and add a bunch of unlikeable characters with terrible dialog and poor filming.

Femi (who looks like he's well in his 20's) plays a corny posh kid who speaks like he's Prince Charles (because he's rich and that's how all rich people talk) and is desperate for the appreciation of the 'less fortunate' hoods (who all break out into random dancelike moves while talking cause poor people like to dance) and most women are more or less gold diggers (it's gyal ting innit?) and super-annoying.

Not even the music was good (except for one or two there in the finale).

Overall a really bad "comedy" that fails to deliver a single laugh and you find yourself looking at the blu ray time bar quite often to see if the misery will end soon.
