Conclusion: 1/5
The original title for this film is ‘The F Word’. I have to admit that I was really disappointed with this film. I thought it was a really strong cast with the likes of Adam Driver, Daniel Radcliffe and Rafe Spall. I have really enjoyed everything I have watched with Rafe Spall in but in this it was like he honestly couldn’t be bothered with the whole film. I almost felt that he had a few days off and he was just filling his few days off being in this. He wasn’t directed well at all. Daniel Radcliffe I felt was just swallowing his lines and that he didn’t even care about trying to deliver them correctly. I also felt that he wasn’t directed well at all by the director. For me especially I felt that he was the weaker link of the whole cast. Adam Driver I felt was the most convincing and the most watchable of all the actors. It is like the director had loads of little good ideas and sub plots but didn’t quite know how to fit them together. The film is almost trying too much to be like When Harry Met Sally, 1989.
