It is not a great film,

Or, even perhaps, a really good film.  But I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Starter for Ten.

James McAvoy, Rebecca Hall, Dominic Cooper, and, oh yeah, ladies, that is Sherlock in there, too, with a stunning comedic tour de force performance.  (Plus, one of the writers/creators of Sherlock, who plays Sherlock's brother is also in Starter for Ten, as the University Challenge Host.)  Great 80s soundtrack, as well, ... The Cure, The Smiths, New Order, etc, ...

It is a pretty decent sentimental fun way to while away a hundred minutes.  Definitely recommended.

(By the way, I am still waiting to see the final installment of Sherlock this Sunday before passing judgement on it.  This season may be a little too "sexy", maybe they are overdosing on the bells and whistles? And where is Zoe Telford?! I will reveal all next week.)

Enjoy the videos,
