Uncerebral b******* - The Festival review by JS

Spoiler Alert
16/08/2018

Sad times we live in when this film is given a wide release and so many wonderful auteurs are struggling for their art. Whoever wrote this needs to be dropped in the pit at download -maybe they will grow a brain there. Perhaps it deserves one star as it is indicative of commercialised festivals? Wouldn't know I'd rather sit in crying and listening to Max Richter obs. Ticket fee better spent at the pub. P.S yes I am a film snob that's why I'm on cinemaparadiso

Dreadful! - The Festival review by TH

Spoiler Alert
20/12/2018

Poor script (not sure there is one) - University fall out with girlfriend so Nick (Thomas) goes with friend to a festival who then meets up with old Uni pals and not surprisingly his ex, then drugs, some sex, some fall outs etc.etc. - the jokes fall short and some of the dialogue at the beginning just time filling. Aspects taken from the Inbetweeners (the embarrassing father in law) and Joe Thomas can't escape being Simon and some actors in this have appeared in the fore-mentioned...go into this with low expectations because it really is poor!

Dreadful, unfunny, pc festival movie, strictly for kids with IQs lower than their shoe size - The Festival review by PV

Spoiler Alert
28/12/2018

Well The Inbetweeners was funny - the series more than the movie, though that had a chemistry and was funny.

This is not even a Poundland Inbetweeners. It's way worse than that.

I think I laughed once. And I though Joe Thomas (who.s actually over 30) was great in The Inbetweeners. Watch that, NOT this.

Gross-out 'jokes' re poo and bodily fluids are unfunny. Usually childish cartoony capers and laughs about drugs. Even cartoon cops in here.

You sort of know when a drama or movie is desperate when they deliberately try to tick the diversity boxes to pander to pc critics. But the fact is, and I have been to Glasters and Reading, it's a mostly white person thing. Very few black faces, so the sidekick is miscast utterly. Just like in Bohemian Rhapsody when they CGI-ed in 20% black faces in the crowd when in reality at Live Aid 1985 there were practically none.

Avoid unless you are very VERY desperate. BUT far better to watch sets from festivals on YouTube (the Stones and Shirley Bassey at Glasters, for example).
