Danny Deckchair is a quirky and wacky enough idea executed well enough by the cast but it takes so long to get the ball rolling and you can literally tell exactly what is going to happen a mile in advance that any enjoyment you get from this film is purely on character alone, which is odd for such a wacky premise. Danny, played very well by Rhys Ifans, is stuck in a life in a big city that he doesnt really care much for. His girlfriend is a complete bitch, which seems to lead Danny to depression. He longs to go camping and doing bizarre and exciting things, only when his girlfriend decides to cancel their trip in order for her to go on a "Date" with a big shot celebrity and lie to him about it, Danny gets this wild idea to tie as many helium balloons to a chair as he can just to see if it will lift him off the ground, it does and before you know it Danny is whisked off across the country into a small town called clarence, landing in Glendas, Otto, back garden where she lies to the people of Clarence that he is a long time friend in order to save him and he becomes like a saviour/jesus like character within this town due to his nature. All the while his bitch of a girlfriend fakes a big screen time plea for him to come home to make money. Naturally even by reading that premise if you have watched a good couple of films in your life you know exactly where this is going to go, Danny falls in love with Glenda, they are the perfect couple and naturally the stereotypical hiccups occur. Its saving grace is its quirky moments such as Danny doing the most bizarre things in order to get his kicks or watching him change a small town by just being who he is, but none of this is even remotely original and the pacing takes sooooo long to actually get the ball rolling that your sitting there working out the ending before the half way point. it ruins the sporatic enjoyment that the film thinks it can give you. The cast do well in their roles, nothing ground braking, they just fit. The cinematography is well enough exectued with some seriously shoddy CGI for his deck chair scene, ill admit it would have been a difficult feat to execute this in real life but as it stands it takes you out of the entire experience. Simpley put, its a rom-com with a touch of the quirky. nothing special but nothing painful. ho hum really.
