Critic Review - Guardian

What went wrong for Ophelia Lovibond? It was all looking gangbusters after a string of entry-level Hollywood roles. Now here she is, bolt-on girlfriend in a third-rate Brit lad-flick.

You make me laugh!! How can you judge a film on your own snobby views on what a actor, that you probably don't even know, should be doing with her career. You do this for a living??
Have you ever been to Hoxton, not the square, HOXTON...?? Well, I grew up there and this film is far from a "Brit lad flick". But I can't argue with the way it was marketed...
Seriously, this was spot on. And, I think the contrast between the relationships, if anything, highlighted that.
For me... Well shot. Well acted. Dialog was very local, (but can only add to the point). We have all seen Eastenders, and how they try to write us. Bare in mind... First time film. They pulled in some big faces and i can't imagine they was in it for the money. I really think you was missing something... Maybe worth another watch??
