Cringe-worthy
30 September 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'll make this swift and to the point.

This film really has no redeeming factors. Worse! It made me squirm restlessly in my seat as our protagonist "Adam" as lame an excuse for a man as you will ever meet, still pining pitifully (Seriously, like a sick old dog) for his ex, goes through as series of uncomfortable situations as he actually goes back to his home town to attend her wedding. There are no words to describe how unpleasant this experience was for me and even my GF who sat beside me in nearly as much discomfort found it difficult going; even remarking at one point how it is possible for a castrated man to have a girlfriend in the first place.

Not once did I laugh, obviously because it wasn't funny and the moments that were scripted to be humorous were just pathetic, but also because the underlying plot for this film is no laughing matter. I'm not saying such a plot should never be tackled, I'm sure there are outfits that could have done a good job with this material and made a side splitting production, but it is dealt with very poorly here indeed. I would no more laugh at this than I would a disabled person having difficulty navigating steep stairs. If any of my friends were in this position and behaving in this manner I would seriously suggest they seek professional help. That I made it to the end is a testament to my persistence.

There is no level on which I found this entertaining and I suggest you give it a miss. In the off chance you do decide to see how bad it is, you will only need to see the first fifteen minutes, that will give you a very clear idea of what your in for, it only goes downhill from there.

Total rubbish
