far better than most brit filmsBy a customer from London, england , 09 Apr 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]although that may not be saying much. you definitely won't regret renting it although, like me, you may find it weird that the various characters in the Midlands speak a range of accents from around the UK and in particular Kathy Burke's sarf London mum is the brother of Robert Carlyle's character who speaks with a broad Glaswegian accent.

BrilliantBy a customer from London , 25 Jan 2009Loved it! Rhys Ifans at his very best. Not sure about Shirley Henderson's accent though. Simple tale and fairly predictable ending but many many laughs throughout. Very entertaining.
once upon a bore in the midlandsBy a customer from Halifax , 07 Jan 2009I was looking foreward to watching this film after watching a couple of other Shane Meadows films and wished i had`nt bothered it never got going, and was very boring, Its a poor story line and the acting was also very poor
disappontingBy a customer from Thornton-Cleveleys , 01 Jan 2009I expected this to be quite funny when I saw the cast but I was a little disappointed. It's worth watching so long as you are not expecting a comedy
A Good Effort. but...By a customer from Isles of Scilly , 28 Dec 2008OK, Shane Meadows is a great film-maker, but this is not one of his most inspired efforts despite the excellent start with the spoof Vanessa Phelps TV show. No real surprises after that despite some very funny cameos particularly the scene in the garage when the wimpy hero is bragging how he dealt with the menace of the returning hard man from Glasgow, or the scene in the Bingo Hall. As Jonathan Ross summed up, it probably looked better on the TV screen than in the cinema. Enjoyable 10 minutes nonetheless, but not a patch on This is England.
Absolutly crackingBy a customer from London , 04 Dec 2008I love the whole film, the cast. the story line. the actors everything.
Very well written, enough to capture the emotion!!! Really good film.
