Aka. Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging. Loads of fun and really sweet. Of so many movies showing on TV, I was drawn to this one purely because of the title. One of those feel-good British teen comedies about boyfriends, girl friends, peer pressure, outward appearances, thongs and…snogging. Lovely watching Georgia (Georgia Groome) and her friends navigate school and all that goes with it, including Robbie (a very, very young Aaron Taylor-Johnson). While I’m far from the target audience (what is that anyway?), I had a big smile on my face as Georgia and the girls “stalked” the guys, learnt how to snog from the class weirdo, disagreed with mom and dad (naturally) and other such things. In all of this, Angus comes into play. Who’s Angus? You’ll need to find out.
If you’re up to not much thinking and need something light, this is it. And I’m sure you’ll identify with some bits!
Directed by Gurinder Chadha, who did Bend it Like Bekham, it also stars one of my favourite ‘comedians’, Alan Davies.
