Storyline

Shaun's a lucky boy - growing up he's had the right education, parents that loved him and he's never been short of cash. But as he gets older, he finds he doesn't fit into this world, especially with the self-righteous kids at his posh private school. Deliberately deceiving his family, he enrols at his cousin's college where he discovers an untouched world of girls, parties and excitement. Desperate to make a name for himself, he tries to impress the top girl, Chrissy, by holding a party for her at his mansion. But all he manages to do is trash the place and even destroy his dad's prized Lotus! He's left with two weeks to find £20,000 before his parents get back from holiday and his dad goes tribal. He devises a plan to make some quick money, but he's going to have to risk everything and tell a whole lot of lies to the people he loves most. Will he try and get away with it and be the top boy he always wanted to be, or will he come clean and face the music? When things get out of hand.... Written by Anonymous

Painful to Watch.
13 January 2015 | by MUFCOKSee all my reviews

I can't really give this a full review as I didn't watch the full film. I got about half way through and it was that bad I simply couldn't continue. The reason I watched this film was the genre and the cast members. Femi Oyeniran, who plays the lead role and directed It's A Lot was fantastic in Kidulthood. In this movie however, he was absolutely awful. He plays the posh, upper class kid who leaves his private school to attend his cousins high school in 'the ends'. The accent he puts on is horrific, the worst posh accent imaginable. His two best mates are irritating, unrealistic, unlikeable and their acting abilities are given a 0 out of 10 from me. The lead character is left home alone for two weeks and in that time he crashes his Dads Ferrari and must find '20 grand' in two weeks. For a couple of crushed bumpers. 20 grand!?! Even if that is supposed to be in the name of comedy, it's ridiculous and is that really the best joke and plot point they could think of? He also gets used by the most popular girl in the school as she wants to throw a party at his massive house whilst his parents are away..

Then I turned it off.

Anuvahood is a fantastic example on how to make a UK Urban comedy successfully. It's A Lot is a fantastic example on how to not make a film. The acting, characters, scenarios, jokes & storyline are all awful. It's not funny, it tries so hard to make you laugh and it is simply painful to watch. Femi Oyeniran should hang up his directing boots right now and never attempt an upper-class accent again. Horrific.

1/10
