“Three and Out,” directed by Jonathan Gershfield

Movie, 2008

British romcom, in which a tube driver contrives to involve himself in a third fatal accident in order to get paid off and out of his job. Not the worst premise and not the absolute worst film in the world, but neither is this a standout, with some fairly flat acting, scripting and a pitch and situations which never quite feel believable, and which therefore struggle to impact. A film which chokes on its ambitions and which has its good ideas – the main character’s cultural aspirations backstory and situations – lost in poor execution. With a few tweaks, this might have been improved, though this is a long way from hitting any targets.
