We’ll be honest very few UK comedies (films in general)that get a good cinematic runs these days. There is a number of reasons, money is the big factor, Destination Dewsbury will be hope to showcase they can deliver.
If you miss The Inbetweeners, this film might bring a smile to your face. Described as “The Inbetweeners on steroids”, a sentiment director/Co-writer Jack Spring shares. He further added “middle-aged version of The Inbetweeners. It’s got real heart and strikes a comedic and emotional chord with a huge spectrum of people; it’s a proper laugh-out-loud comedy that touches the heart”.
The film will be hoping to prove you don’t need a massive budget to deliver the laughs. So far the reviews have shown critically they are delivering. With an average age of 21 including the director making him the youngest feature film director in the UK. When it comes to comedy, if you can bring irreverent, laugh out, silly will love it.
