Oh Dear!
25 September 2014 | by roy-cSee all my reviews

This is in the road movie genre about a group of 4 middle aged men tackling a long distance walk in the North of England.

It is set against the backdrop of the lovely scenery of the Coast to Coast walk. This is standard film fare - so far so good. I quite liked the sound of a fly on the wall documentary although I naturally incline towards the traditional.

Unfortunately, the execution is very poor. It just seems like a badly made amateur video, containing characters who are not particularly well drawn and who are generally unlikeable.

Like an amateurish version of "The Trip" with Coogan and Brydon, minus the jokes, and the charm that many find there.

I wouldn't normally give a score as low as 2, and usually resent the sort of reviewer who would happily give such a score, but it really is that bad
