Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging
Nicely done adaptation of the YA book Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison, and while I don't understand why they changed the title, it doesn't bother me immensely.
What I liked about this:
the actress cast as Georgia actually looks like a real teenager.
it stuck fairly well to the plot of the book.
harrowing moments that reminded me exactly how dreadful it is to be 14.
What I didn't like about this:
no teenage boys look like that.
left out some of the best bits of the book.
ridiculous, American-teen-movie style ending tacked on.
It was fun to watch, but I wouldn't really recommend it though.
