Gifted comic actor Deacon proves a genial central presence, which is just as well since the screenplay, co-scripted with Michael Vu (here playing a fellow gang member), doesn't quite deliver.
Most peculiar of all are the film's genuinely violent interludes, which unexpectedly shift the tone and stifle the comedy, and boy, this is one film that doesn't need any help being unfunny.
People wet themselves, and messily eat or ironically endorse the carefully placed products, plus a woman from Big Brother has ketchup sucked off of her feet.
The know-your-limits message clearly went unheeded by all involved in making the film.
Anuvahood's so funny, I even laughed at Richard Blackwood's bit.
Disappointing British comedy that's let down by highly irritating characters, a seen-it-all-before plot and a shift in tone that's both jarring and unnecessary.
Sadly, there's little to like here with the comedy plain unfunny and the violence jarring with the satirical tone.
It's really just a torrent of age-old gags and clumsy, pointless situations dressed up with street slang.
A solid effort from Adam Deacon but not really enough to light up the concrete.
The characters' non-stop chatter, much of which is shouted at top volume, wears us out within the first five minutes.
Let's just hope there's not anuva.
Really funny and brilliant film enjoyed all of it, Way better than I expected when I first heard they were making this film.
