Film Review – Destination: Dewsbury

Destination: Dewsbury

BACK in the 80s, five friends are making the most of their final schooldays.

Twenty years on and they’ve got jobs they didn’t want, and wives who don’t want them. The leader of the gang, Frankie, moved up to Yorkshire and now he’s dying. The others find out and, after decades apart, they get together. And so they set off on one last sad, mad, bad road trip to Dewsbury, before it’s all too late.

Mix in a dollop of The Inbetweeners’ intellectual wit, add a pinch of bromancing from The World’s End’s and then stir in a few ladles of The Hangover and you’ve got Destination: Dewsbury which is destined to be one of 2017’s funniest releases.
