Cemetary Junction Blu-Ray Review

Cemetary Junction Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: From the award-winning team behind the hit series; “The Office". 70’s England is in full swing as three outcast friends find themselves drinking, joking, fighting and chasing girls, while dreaming of escape from their blue-collar hometown of Cemetery Junction. Freddie (Christian Cooke) is a salesman suddenly thrown onto the fast track when he gains the attention of his boss, Mr. Kendrick (Ralph Fiennes). Torn between a prior life of partying with his friends (Tom Hughes and Jack Doolan) and the promise of a brighter future, life gets more complicated when the bosses daughter becomes the focus of Freddie’s affection. Also starring Ricky Gervais and Emily Watson.

Review: Ricky Gervais is comedy gold.  Everything he touches I bust a gut laughing at, from his stand-up to the Office to Ghostworld.  Now, it needs to be qualified that in order to enjoy Gervais, and this film that he wrote and directed, you need to "get" british comedy.  This is most definately a british comedy.

This is a great british coming of age film.  It has uncomfortable comedy and some great situations that will leave you wanting more.  I highly recommend this one!!

The Blu-Ray extras include: Commentary with Writers/Directors Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, Cast Commentary with Christian Cooke, Tom Hughes, and Jack Doolan, The Directors: A Conversation with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, The Lads Look Back: The Stars Discuss Cemetery Junction and Deleted Scenes.

Interest Range: Comedy, Drama
