Brought back happy memories! - Starter for 10 review by CP Customer

Enjoyable comedy about a naive working class Essex boy who goes off to Bristol university to study English. As a kid he was obsessed with 'finding answers to questions' and his extensive general knowledge lands him a place on the University Challenge team. I found the soundtrack really enjoyable and the film brought back memories for me, as I was an 80's student. It's not a startling film, but neither is it boring or plotless. One of those to smile along to I think.

Starter for two.... - Starter for 10 review by Pete W

I'm afraid this didn't really grip me as a story. Too many stereotypical 1980s students and James McAvoy can't pass for 18. Mark Gatiss does a good impression of Bamber Gascoigne though.
