Subject: Ricky Gervais's Brent movie splits critics

Written By: Philip Eno on 08/11/16 at 9:09 pm

Ricky Gervais's feature film outing as David Brent has received mixed reviews following Wednesday's world premiere.
Titled Life on the Road, the movie, unveiled in London, is a spin-off from the hit BBC TV series The Office.
While some critics thought it "excruciatingly brilliant", others judged it a "slowly unfolding disappointment".
The movie sees the former office manager now selling cleaning products but dreaming he is a rock star.
He decides to pursue his goal of stardom by touring with his self-funded band Foregone Conclusion.
As part of the movie's launch, Gervais performed on a makeshift stage in Leicester Square as his smarmy alter ego with his fake band.
The film is released in UK cinemas on 19 August.
