Critic Reviews for The Be All and End All

All Critics (8)

Both plotting and playing are a bit ragged and the visuals are telly-tastic, but the film's fresh, unvarnished take on male friendship is altogether winning.

A few rather clunky plot developments aside, this is a tender, funny and very well acted film with engaging characters.

December 6, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's poignant, well acted and occasionally funny, but a little formulaic, too.

December 3, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

This is a movie with a big heart, and nice performances from Josh Bolt and Eugene Byrne, playing teenage best mates, but for me it somehow never quite got over its sentimental unrealities.

December 2, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Others may respond more readily than I did to this ambitious attempt to blend kitchen-sink realism, heartwarming sitcom and raunchy sex comedy. For me, they didn't gel at all.

December 2, 2010 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

A conflicted, uneven experience: sugary kitchen-sink realism with wank jokes.
