All Stars review

Another banal Brit-flick featuring talent-show tweens

Some day, God willing, there will be a moratorium on films about plucky kids putting on talent shows to save their schools/parks/yoof centres from predatory developers.

Until then we are doomed to get movies like this, a naff slice of urban wish-fulfilment in which tween misfits set aside their differences to prevent the bulldozers destroying their preposterously drug, crime and trouble-free hangout.

Ashleys Jensen and Walters are among the adults who look on benignly in a banal, corny Brit-pic that’s sure to be laughed out of cinemas by its target audience.
