Wannabe review

There is, perhaps, a comedy to be had about how the briefly famous readjust back into ordinary life once they are forgotten, which Wannabe hints at. But by focussing on the talentless Maxine's ill-judged efforts to get back into the limelight makes this a rather predictable sitcom of irritating cringe, despite a smattering of wry lines.
