Movie Info

Meet Kenneth. He thinks he's got the moves. He thinks he's got swagger. He thinks he can spit bars. But in reality, he's a WASTEMAN! With the bailiffs banging on the door, parents screaming in his ear, and finding no luck with the ladies, he needs to FIX UP, and fast. When our boy starts selling weed to get himself out of trouble, local badman Tyrone is VEX, opening up a world of hurt for Kenneth and his misfit crew. But he ain't gonna go down without a fight. It's time for him to get rich, or CRY TRYING! From the mind of Adam Deacon comes the UK's first HILARIOUS urban comedy, with a BIG cast including Femi Oyeniran, Jaime Winstone, Ollie Barbieri, Richard Blackwood & Ashley Walters, and featuring hot tunes from Tinie Tempah, Boy Better Know, Wiley and Dizzee Rascal. This ain't just any hood, it's ANUVAHOOD!

    Coming off the new wave of these films coming out of the U.k, this being a more comic take on this culture, Adam Deacon certainly gives it his all and some comedic moments do come off the situations. some works, some dont but, but theres stuff always going on, it gets heavy handed at the end, and to a degree belongs in a film like kidulthood, but it worked. a enjoyable if not fantastic watch

    Adam Deacon has been really good in everything else but his directorial debut, which comes off as a torrent of badly conceived gags and essentially Kevin and Perry in the Hood - a terrible concept. Anything with Richard Blackwood in should be avoided (he's in this ; )

    Firstly, if you have no understanding of London teen slang - as heard in Adulthood/Kidulthood & the like - then avoid this, or if those movies didn't appeal to you, likewise. This isn't a drama though, it's a comedy - one that is clearly taking the p*ss out of 'hood films' with OTT characters and jokes. It has a target audience (& those kids will no doubt like the movie!). I enjoyed it for what it is - absolutely no seriousness & stupidly funny.
