Who was your least favorite character and why?
Pete: The entire “population” of Newton Haven because they just made everything so difficult.
Brigette: The townspeople of Newton Haven because they were boring.
How was the casting?
Pete: Totally brilliant, the best I’ve seen in a long time.
Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while?
Pete: Grabbed me immediately and actually gained intensity throughout.
Brigette: It grabbed me immediately and kept my attention throughout. There were times when I was literally on the edge of my seat.
Pete: “To err is human, so… errr.”
– Gary King
Brigette: “I don’t believe this. A man of your legendary prowess drinking f***in’ rain! It’s like seein’ a lion eating some hummus.” – Gary King to Andy Knightley
What would you change?
Pete: Maybe the ending…it went a little weird for me.
Brigette: The pubs. I wished they hadn’t all been “Starbucked”.
How was the soundtrack?
Pete: Brilliant: the best one I’ve heard for a long time.
Brigette: Awesome! You can listen to it for yourself, we’ve added it to Grooveshark.
Have you watched other films by the same director/actor?
Brigette: I really enjoy Simon Pegg films and when he teams up with Nick Frost, it’s guaranteed entertainment.
How was the ending?
Pete: A little weird for me.
What was the moral of the story?
Pete: A true friend is one that sticks with you even if you change.
Brigette: If your favorite pub gets “Starbucked”, be afraid, be very afraid.
Who would you recommend it to?
Pete: People who enjoy a beer and a good laugh.
Brigette: To people who want to be free to do what they want to do and have a good time doing it.
Beer pairing: (Pete’s specialty)
After much deliberation and debate (I almost went with water): Fuller’s ESB
How much does someone have to change before you would not believe in them anymore?
