Thread Name: Worst Movie ever
Subject: RE: Worst Movie ever
This might be a controversial choice, but my most hated film is 'Billy Elliott'. Maybe not the worst ever but surely the most over-rated - poor acting, can't seem to decide whether it's supposed to be set in the 1970s or 1980s, and a ham-fisted and simplistic portrayal of English working people as a group of knuckle-draggers who are unable to appreciate any form of culture or want the best for their children.

I know from a newspaper article a few years ago that at least one well-known reviewer agrees with me.

Watch Brassed Off, the Full Monty or Kes instead...
