Mr Right
The murkier depths of our film industry are crammed with those suffering from the belief that because they’ve seen a few films, they’re qualified to make them. The resulting concoctions – which often concern cockney gangsters or modern romance – attempt to weave the filmmakers’ personal experiences into something nearing art. It rarely works.

Admittedly, this gay-themed multi-character romcom from first-timer brother-and-sister team David and Jacqui Morris isn’t quite as disastrous as it could have been – there are some decent one-liners and the occasional keen insight into the dating process. But it’s still hopelessly amateurish, from the blandly overzealous cast culled from TV soaps to the shabby in-your-face shakycam directing and excruciating wannabe-hip soundtrack. Most disastrous is the script, which carries about as much dramatic weight as an episode of ‘Heartbeat’, and expects us to accept its crowd of vapid, self-regarding London media snobs as remotely sympathetic or likeable.

This is not a Hollywood film and that is what is great about it. It is like a breath of fresh area, Shot around the streets of Soho and places anyone that has been to London know. It takes you on an amusing journey of friendship and relationships but breaks from the norm of what is churned out these days.
