Tripe
21 July 2016 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Despite the title this is not exclusively comprised of Scottish artists,there is a 16 year old singer from Manchester.It shows how times are changing that the show takes place in a mock up Of a television studio rather than in a variety theatre.There are vox pop interviews by broadcaster MacDonald Hobley.He interviews the family Of the young singer.For some reason he asks them about their favourite foods.These included potatoes pie,tripe and onions and black pudding!For the rest there are singers,comedians and dancers.One can just wonder if the makers of this film realised the irony of the situation.Here they are imitating a television show when television was strangling the life out of the cinema.Furthermore television was already taking over the mantle of variety and provide really big stars for nothing whereas cinema patrons were paying to see second eaters.
