Aro Favourite Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging


USA 2008, 96 minutes
Dir. Gurinder Chadha
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Family, Comedy

Topics: Rites-of-passage.


Aroview: Louise Rennison’s much-loved youth novel comes to the screen as a sprightly feelgood comedy about a teenager recording the pitfalls of her dweeby adolescence in a personal journal.

Like an angsty BRIDGET JONES’S DIARY for teens, this visits those sometimes embarrassing, sometimes exhilarating years with oodles more charm and wit than similar Stateside fare, despite a storyline that feels more than a bit familiar. The director of BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM makes this smart enough to satisfy fans of the novel, and also teens looking for something they can relate to in amongst the airbrushed unreality.
