What a completely disarmingly brilliant film. Just when you expect a lightweight rom-com along comes a delightfully witty masterpiece with real heart, great acting and wonderful dialogue. OK, it's a coming-of-age, feel-good, boy-meets-girl, college drama but it avoids most of the usual cliches and leaves some great lines and scenes indellibly etched on your memory. The plot - a quartet of old school chums (none academically gifted) have left school and are pondering their future - the prospects are stark - either university or stone masonry - as "Cutters" in the single local industry. Hero Dave is drifting and, inspired by the Italian Champion cycling team, dreams about becoming a world cycling champion when he bumps into a lovely college girl. His efforts to court the girl lead eventually to a mismatched cycling contest - the Cutters against The College Brats. Along the way we follow the trials and tribulations of the four friends and find out how their future plans will cause their paths to diverge. We've all been there, leaving school, college, job etc - it's an emotionally charged time and this film captures the poignancy really well. There are some excellent comic conflicts between Dave and his well meaning but bewildered parents - excellent acting by all concerned. So, yes, it is another story about growing up and the loss of innocence but it'll have you at the edge of your seat laughing, cheering, feeling self-righteous indignation, embarrassment and the kind of bittersweet feeling in the stomach that only lovesickness or a really good film/book can give you. Enjoy again and again.
