Review

Our Score
Writer/director Justin Edgar's feature debut has been described as a combination of Animal House-style comedy and British social realism. The Birmingham-set plot revolves around teenage slacker Jason (Luke de Woolfson) who must turn over a new leaf before his 18th birthday so he can inherit the fortune of his dead rock star father. However, his mates and a grasping stepmother have other ideas. Edgar throws in taste-free comic clichés - a chaotic house party, a cute little dog destined for something unpleasant - and a bunch of relatively unknown actors cast as one-dimensional grotesques, but the result is a collection of appalling and amateurish scenes that are neither endearing nor realistic.

Summary

A lazy teenager gleefully awaits his 18th birthday, when he is due to inherit a fortune from his late rock star father. However, he learns a clause in the Will states that he does not get a penny unless he can get a stable job and a steady girlfriend. Comedy, starring Luke de Woolfson and Morwenna Banks.
