One surprise gem in the movie that wasn't spoiled by the previews.
16 March 2015 | by steph_sim_crazySee all my reviews

As a huge fan of Carl Barron's work it was hard not to have high expectations. I'd seen quite a bit of the promotional material that was released beforehand so I knew that the movie wasn't going to be a straight out comedy. I admire the path that the filmmakers decided to take in making it more of a serious piece. It shows you a side of Carl which you don't see on-stage, which is really interesting.

I however was a little disappointed by how much of the movie was shown in the adverts and trailer, I feel like they definitely showed too much of it. It did achieve it's goal of giving the potential audience an idea of what the film was going to be like, however I found that there was only one aspect of the plot which they chose to leave out that made it unexpected and exciting. I won't say what it is, as it is quite a good (and one of the only) surprises of the movie. I will however say that it is clever and definitely something that makes the movie worth seeing.

If you go in without expectations that the film will be hilarious all the way through then you are sure to enjoy the story and the characters for what they really are; something that is honest and real.
