Critic Reviews for Anuvahood
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.
Audience Reviews for Anuvahood
Really funny and brilliant film enjoyed all of it, Way better than I expected when I first heard they were making this film.
Feel the pain! Kenneth is a down on his luck young adult who was recently fired from his job at a department store. The loss of income may cause his family to get evicted. He tries to make ends meet by making rap mixed tapes and selling weed. Just as things start looking up, a local bully comes and steals all of his weed and leaves him with nothing. Can Kenneth make ends meet or will his family fall apart? "The pigs are on my dick like a fucking rash." Adam Deacon delivers Anuvahood in his lone directorial project. The storyline for this picture is actually pretty fun to watch unfold and reminded me of a European Friday (Ice Cube and Chris Tucker). I thought the script was equally as clever and the soundtrack was outstanding. The interactions between characters were also pretty good and the acting was better than I anticipated. The cast includes Adam Deacon, Femi Oyeniran, Ollie Barbieri, Paul Kaye, Richie Campbell, Ashley Walters, and Terry Stone. "Stop humping my counter, please." I found this movie on Netflix and thought the plot sounded interesting. I am really surprised this movie received such poor reviews. I felt the picture was fairly clever and well done and I loved how it unfolded. This is a comedy with a fantastic script, soundtrack, and characters. This is definitely worth a viewing and is borderline worth adding to your DVD collection. "I always go hard!" Grade: B
What did I just watch? That was plain weird. It was like "Friday" without the humor, and the actors on speed & crack. Phew! There were a number of lines that just flew by... whether UK slang, accented, or just plain spoken to fast... and there wasn't much plot anyway. There's just not much to like here. The main character is a real loser, the WAY over-the-top bully is ridiculous and unbelievable, and the whole "pay the rent or else" schtick is soooo old. Even the visiting Enrique is a stereotype shell of a character who smiles handsomely at everything as if he's 7 years old. Too serious for comedy, too simple for drama, too weird for US audiences. Skip it or be VEX.
