It's A Lot review

Femi Oyeniran makes his directorial debut in this woeful comedy

A lesson in yoof vernacular: “It’s a lot” is a phrase that tends to be uttered in exasperation when something’s just too much to handle.

You might want to use it to describe a film like this. Making his directorial debut, Femi Oyeniran ( Anuvahood ) also plays Shawn, who’s so sick of the silver spoon stuffed in his mouth that he transfers to an inner-city college – then promptly totals his dad’s car and has to raise the funds to fix it.

Riffing on Ferris Bueller, Fresh Prince and any number of better London-set comedies, It’s A Lot is filled with good intentions but, sadly, is just fatally unfunny.
