A mediocre kitchen-sink drama from Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. Set in 1973, it's about three working-class lads in a dead-end town, and that's about all it's about. The characters were far too broad and simplistic and nothing surprising happened. Ricky Gervais had a relatively small role as the main character's dad. The scenes with him were the best in the film but they still weren't close to as good as his two television shows. I'm not even sure this was as good as "When the Whistle Blows."
