If I didn't like Morrissey any more, I wouldn't even think about the film, but my Twitter timeline is flooded with comments about it from people who bought into the demonisation.

I swear it's pathological.

Anyone else notice in the closing credits that 'Barbarism begins at home' was wrongly shown as 'Barbarism starts at home'?
I thought the film was rubbish, I didn't like the un-called for side swipes at Moz either, but obviously the music was fabulous.

...While I have your attention (or not), Sam, could you explain the plot again? I understood it was 87 minutes of various people lifting shirts.
Is there a stupendous plot twist? 2 minutes before the end, does someone quite accidentally find out your uncle is gay?
:drama:

This movie is for tweens, who have absolutely no interest in the Smiths. It could’ve been something, if John Hughes were alive and at the helm. The only obvious thing it illustrates is that Morrissey once had something to offer, lyrically. ...but other than absolute felching slugs, like Karen and Tiny-B, nobody’s giving this the time of day.

...like a Melvis album.

What a wasted opportunity.

It is possible to absolutely adore the work of the Smiths and now, think that Morrissey is a complete and utter c&$t. It’s not that difficult to grasp, Karen.

Record sales don’t lie. ...but you’re not a collector. You’re a fawning sycophant. The Smiths still outsell ANYTHING Morrissey has released in his solo career. Every f$&king day of the week.

You are sleeping. You do not want to believe...

Should I wait until I have to pay 99p
To watch this Karen.... your view
Is far more important than most on here??
Her view is just as pathetic and worthless as yours. Just watch the bloody rubbish. We all know you’ll say it’s greatest film ever made. 🤡

If you're obsessively talking about someone you hate, whose work you adore, then you're a twisted prat.

I watched the movie today and it's obviously a movie made from a fan for fans but I enjoyed it a lot, it was very entertaining and I can't imagine not enjoying a movie in which you're listening to The Smiths every 5 minutes, anyway.
I thought the lines from Smiths lyrics were cleverly used like all the other references.
It seems that is not the case with the usual whiners on the forum but that was to be expected.

Another continuity issue was the record playing Meat Is Murder in the middle of the album. It's the last track on the album. It could not have been playing that song.

For anyone interested, the non-Smiths tracks used in the film:

Why? - Bronski Beat
Heaven's Gonna Have To Wait - Extreme Music
All Going Out Together - Big Dipper
For Your Love (I Shed A Million Tears) - Little Bessie (1961)
Man On The Moon - The MTV Theme
And Then She Smiles - A Certain Ratio
Bark At The Moon - Ozzy Osbourne
Lovin' In The First Degree - Extreme Music
Pretend - credited to 'Casheles', but I believe it's actually The Cashmeres - Barbarism Begins At Home is titled Barbarism Starts At Home in the credits, so pinch of salt...

Regards,
FWD.
