Son of Rambow

So went to see Son of Rambow tonight, it's a British film and lives up to all classic British film requirements; its a nice story about 2 friends growing up in the 80's who decide to make a comical action film.

There were a few moments in the film which I loved my favourite being a scene in a school sixth form common room where a load of kids are sitting around sniffing stuff that smells like cake... what's that all about??

What did surprise me about the film was that one of the boys comes from a Plymouth Brethren religious family. whcih you don't see very often... Needless to say the film doesn't make you want to convert.

The only real beef i've got with it is it was hyped up too much, i didn't find it as funny as i'd hoped and it was a bit soppy.. but that's just me being fussy.

All in all, I would recommend it and it gets a solid 7/10 form me.
