User Review

Really great adaptation – I hope you enjoy it too.

Rating: 10/10


My daughter and I went to see this film last night with great
anticipation as we have read the books. I know that the director is
great having seen her previous work and I was looking forward to seeing
how she and her co-writer had adapted the books for screen.

First off it is based on the both 'Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal
Snogging' and 'it's okay, I'm wearing really big knickers' there have
been a few minor changes to make it work on film without Georgia
sounding too whiny and to make the story flow better. It was a shame
that we didn't get to meet Sven and his awesome flares, but he was
there disco dancing in the background and Georgia fans will know him
when they see him.

From the moment it started we were engaged, the cinema was packed and
during Georgia's initial walk home we were howling with laughter and it
just got better. (Did her feet move or did she glide?) The audience was
a mixed bunch, a majority of teenage girls, a sprinkling of boys and a
few of us "out of the stone age", I don't think that anybody disliked
it. It got major reactions from all of the audience each finding humour
in different places. There were a few sad ahhh's when there was a sad
looking 'Dave the Laugh', some misty eyes during a serious dressing
down and laughter at Mum ogling Jem – or was that just me! anyhoo –
both my daughter (16) and I (38) would pay to see it again. We highly
recommend it but take a tissue with you, if not for the tears of
laughter but for those misty eyes that may sneak up on you.

It gives you a warm feeling to be reminded what romance and love is,
both from a younger and older point of view. Although I did say to my
daughter on the way home that you are not incomplete if you are don't
have a partner, but it can be a great feeling when you are ready. But
Georgia is written with a boyfriend goal in mind. Look out Sex God
Georgia has a plan!
