Modern Life Is Rubbish review

Daniel Gill's debut is a derivative rom-com starring Josh Whitehouse and Freya Mavor.

The British rom-com has been pronounced dead so regularly since the heyday of Working Title / Richard Curtis that a revival has been on the cards for a while. Alas, despite committed work by the two leading performers, Modern Life Is Rubbish suffers from the same design faults as similar entries in the cycle: a lack of rom, a complete dearth of com, and a hopelessly derivative script which does nothing but recycle scenes from better films.
