In 1970s England, three blue-collar friends spend their days joking, drinking, fighting and chasing girls. Freddie (Christian Cooke) wants to leave their working-class world but cool, charismatic Bruce (Tom Hughes) and lovable loser Snork (Jack Doolan) are happy with life the way it is. When Freddie gets a new job as a door-to-door salesman and bumps into his old school sweetheart Julie (Felicity Jones), the gang are forced to make choices that will change their lives for ever
I love Ricky Gervais, he's hilarious and talented, but, let's face it, the movies he's been in, The Invention Of Lying, Ghost Town, Night At The Museum 2, are not movies that I could give any four or even 3 star rating to.
Cemetery Junction is different. Written by Gervais and Merchant and filmed in the UK, Gervais stars in the movie but takes a back seat to the main characters who act out this coming of age tale well. This film is not a laugh a minute gag-fest, rather a well written, flowing story set that is filled with humourous references and well placed humourous asides. Even though Gervais is not the star, his relationship with his live-in mother-in-law is hilarious and suits Gervais down to the ground. Credit to him for not trying to completely steal the limelight in this movie.
