Storyline

About 13 years on from his appearance in the documentary series The Office, a documentary film crew is once again following the life of David Brent. He is now working as a rep for cleaning goods distributor but still harbours dreams of making it big in the music business. Acting on this, he takes three weeks off work and tours with a new-look version of Foregone Conclusion, the band he was in in the 90s (he's the only remaining original member, for various reasons...).

Trivia

The song "Don't cry, it's Christmas" has been performed before in a previous podcast, The Podfather Christmas Special in 2001, by Ricky Gervais to Karl Pilkington and Stephen Merchant. Although the lyrics has been altered a little for the movie, it is the same song. See more »

Goofs

Very nice
8 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

I liked this comedy and i find it sad that many people are bashing it. It has many funny moments throughout and it is also giving a message at the same time. Probably those who didn't like it were comparing it to the Office and there are similarities of course but this is different it is a movie and it is a romantic comedy actually. I do recommend it especially for people who like Ricky and his style it's all there all what you need to get the best of him. Even the songs are nice and catchy.
