Suzie Gold

2006-03-30 12:50


As Suzie Gold's sister prepares to get married, Suzie begins to think about her own love-life. Her doting but dysfunctional family only want her to be happy and find a good Jewish boy to settle down with. But then Suzie meets Darren, a boy from work, and they start a heady romance. However the relationship sours when Suzie finds herself unable to bring him home, worried that he won't match up to her family's exacting (double) standards.

Heartbroken, Suzie begins to question her role in life. But she is soon approached by perfect son-in-law material Anthony Silver who assumes, as does her family, that she will marry him. While the pressure builds for her to tie the knot, Suzie is forced to decide what she really wants out of life.

What the critics are saying:

"...if you enjoyed My Big Fat Greek Wedding and have had the odd run-in with your mishpokhe (that's family to you and me), this likeable tale will be as welcome as a Mars bar during Yom Kippur."
- Neil Smith, BBCi Film

"...throws a surprisingly cool spotlight on the soap opera of getting hitched in North London. I enjoyed it immensely."
- James Christopher, TimesOnline

"...sadly Ric Cantor's film does nothing more than wheel out all the old stereotypes, in an unsubtle script which is also low on gags."
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

A lively and colourful romantic comedy that offers palatable light entertainment but not much in the way of originality.

Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone

2016-10-14 07:38

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
