“I so wanted to love this film, after all look whou0026#39;s in it, so many names and a wealth of acting history. And itu0026#39;s about the NHS, a nations greatest achievement bar none, currently being dismantled bit by bit by bit. And yet this film misfires on just about every level.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDavid Bradleyu0026#39;s, Judi Denchu0026#39;s and Jenifer Saunders roles are top notch, but Bally Gillu0026#39;s is superb.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBut what got me, was almost quarter way through the entire film hits a bump in the road, changes direction, hits you square on in the face and then somehow, looses itu0026#39;s way again and finds the road it was on. What the heck happened there? For me it ruined the film. It should have either stuck with the one or the otheru003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere was plenty of potential here, and the cast to take it into the realms of awards, but sadly I think it will disappear into the margin bin of your local video shop – if they still existed.”
