Cemetery Junction

2010 by Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant - British movie

After watching some movies, we just think oh this could have been like this, like that and what not. But never we feel like it was good or it was ugly. A British movie to add to those kinds ...

Cemetery junction is a locality which mostly have low or middle income people, most depending on some industries for their living. Of the three friends, who are the major players in the movie, one really wants to break the mould from the locality of industrial workers and make it big in his career. He joins an insurance company and finds out that his boss's daughter is his adolescent friend.

The movie is set in the 70's and the beginning was allright, when it focused on the pranks played by the three friends, ending up in the police station on a daily basis. At this point it looked like it was going to be a comedy focusing on these youngsters. But later, it looks like a drama and in the final minutes is just another romantic comedy.

It is an allright watch, I would say. Never bohring, some touching moments in between and all. But it is mostly like, it is neither a satire or a drama or a romantic comedy. It is like watching a movie without a heart.

In between the 70's settings and the cinematography are two plus for this movie.
