Quirky - and has its moments,
This review is from: Rocket Science [DVD] (DVD)
When I saw this DVD in the shop there seemed to be a big contradiction between the encouraging reviews from a number of respected publications - and the fact that it was £1 in the bargain bin! Having watched it I think I can understand both. It is not the formulaic mainstream disadvantaged kid overcomes adversity and wins girl type of film, but it is unconventional and very amusing at times. So I enjoyed it and laughed on occasions, but for me I expected more from it. The ending seemed to come out of nowhere (making me think 'Was that it?'), without, to my mind, a satisfactory conclusion to some of the different strands going through it. So do watch it and laugh - but don't expect too much.
