DVD: Anuvahood



When wanabee gangsta Kenneth "call me K" (Adam Deacon) and his friends are bullied and robbed by local thug Tyrone (Richie Campbell) it's up to K to prove his street cred and take on Tyrone.


This British comedy follows in the footsteps of Ali G and provides some hilarious moments, there just aren't enough of them to make is as good as it could be.


Adam Deacon writes, directs and stars, maybe he has taken on too many roles in this production because he is great on screen as the deluded K. In particular, the scene where he gets high rapping along to his favourite tracks in his bedroom is hilarious.


Campbell is also fantastic as the manic muscle-bound Tyrone who has a penchant for baby oil.


It's a decent little comedy that shines in places but fails to deliver in others.
