2.0 out of 5 stars Dire - but I'm a clone of Victor Meldrew, 5 Feb 2009
This review is from: The Black Balloon [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Sorry, I just can't give this film a good review. I can understand the other reviewers assessments and the fact that in parts this film is quite entertaining, BUT..... if you are a middle-aged man, you know the sort, complains when his car is repaired, can't stand people who quote from the Daily Mail, has seen it all and done very little about it. Well that's me and this film is not for you.

What is very positive about this film is that it is amazing considering that it is a low budget film, the cinematography is good and there is so much that is nice about it. Perhaps that is the crux of why I didn't enjoy it. I could imagine my wife and her friends sitting down and really enjoying this and perhaps having a little weep at the end.

Not trying to be sexist and as a clone of Victor Meldrew I realise that my opinions may be against the grain, but if you have garden shed syndrome, attend football matches, like to prepare food using jars or cans,stand pensively in the supermarket aisle comparing the prices of the various budget beers or lagers, please avoid this film.
