  Where Nothing Ever Happens!!!

| | See all blayboy's reviews (447)

*Tamara Drewe is a film about a pretty English Rose that returns to her village where she was once known as the Ugly Duckling!! Before long all the men are fighting over her!
*I do try and support British films but found this a little predictable and lacking in plot. I think this will be enjoyed by a slightly older audience.
*On the plus side its not terrible but wouldn't watch it more than once. Also nice to see some Dorset Country Side and the teenage girls provide a few laughs.

  A Great British Comedy

I thought this film was wonderful. Not the biggest budget movie you'll ever watch, but Stephen Frears did good! A simple, yet funny film, set in beautiful countryside and all characters are comical and quirky. Credit to the 2 young teens who stole the show! The language is colourful, but not overly offensive - just adds to the humour! Give it a go, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

  A decent little romp in the country.

Thankfully based around a varied and interesting ensemble and featuring some nice performances this adaption (itself based on the novel 'Far from the Madding Crowd' is a pleasant enough diversion but not the sort of film to come back to often.

When the long absent Tamara Drewe (Gemma Arterton) returns to the sleepy English village of Ewedon to sell her deceased mother's house, her return soon sets into motion a whole range of upsets and relationship turnabouts as she settles back into the lives of those she left behind.

Beautifully shot, nicely witty and with a great performance by Tamsin Grieg as the most sympathetic character in the piece, it's good for a Sunday afternoon, even if it's rambling plot strands never quite come to a cohesive whole and everything ends up getting tied up too neatly.

I had seen the trailer and laughed, so I thought I ought to get the DVD because I love Brit flicks- true to the notion, it is but I was disappointed because all the funny bits were in the trailer and the rest of the film left a lot to be desired.

  Rubbish

I actually fell asleep watching this, so unbelievably boring!
I was patiently waiting for the moments to laugh but they never came. Don't waste your money!

  Worth buying the DVD

| | See all wineman's reviews (52)

This may not have been a big budget movie, but it is definately worth viewing. I take my hat off to the 2 girls who played typical 15 year old teenagers, as they really played their parts very well and very realistically. It's a shame not many people have heard of this British film, but it is worth watching.

  "..BRILLIANT BRITISH COMEDY.."

This is a very nice little British film with a great cast of characters and a wild and tainted story of love and sex all centred around the lovely Tamara played by the beautiful Gemma arterton, very funny black British humour with plenty of language, its a warm hearted tale thats sure to please any fan of this type of movie, certainly worth checking out you will probably be surprised!!
