Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging
Welcome to my sad life.
Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging is a relatable drama/ rom-com/ sleepover movie aimed at teenagers going through the stage when boys are hot and the general awkwardness of teenage hood, based on the books by Louise Rennison.
14 year old Georgia Nicholson is the lead member of her friends group The Ace Gang, dealing with the embarrassment of her parents affection, her sister who thinks she’s a cat and trying to impress new boy and bass player of Still Dylan called Robbie (played by Aaron Johnson), who is dating Georgia’s rival ‘Wet Lindsay’ (Kimberly Nixon) and Robbie also has a non identical twin brother named Tom (Sean Bourke) who eventually dates her friend Jas (Eleanor Tomlinson). As usual, there’s the he’s dating the popular bully stereotype which is often so samey that it gets boring.
It’s a sweet little film, very feel good, considering that I am around that age, but has such a limited market of people aged about 11-16 that it isn’t much more than a cheesy teenage movie.
