Aroview: Cute but formulaic youthful rom-com set in Thatcher's Britain, with the boyishly handsome James McAvoy as a working-class (yeah, right) upstart who gains acceptance into a posh university and onto the team of TV gameshow "University Challenge".
Stripping John Hughes' (American!) teen comedy rule book, the cliches (young man falls for the blonde but can't see his suitability for his brunette buddy) will be tolerated by a narrow demographic of young romantics, but no amount of 80's 'new wave' on the soundtrack will fool those looking for a dose of nostalgia. Comedienne Catherine Tate is amusing as usual, even in a 'straight' role.
