View 'Cemetery Junction' Trailer   

Ricky Gervais' and Stephen Merchant's feature-film directorial debut, Cemetery Junction centres on three men working at an insurance firm in 1970's England. In 1970s England, three blue-collar friends spend their days joking, drinking, fighting and chasing girls. Freddie (Christian Cooke) wants to leave their working-class world but cool, charismatic Bruce (Tom Hughes) and lovable loser Snork (Jack Doolan) are happy with life the way it is. When Freddie gets a new job as a door-to-door salesman and bumps into his old school sweetheart Julie (Felicity Jones), the gang are forced to make choices that will change their lives for ever.

45 out of 100  Brilliantly Gervais without being Gervais
Seamus from Monaghan, 25 Sep 2010
This is a really good British film and no doubt if it was by any other writer/ director it would be praised to the hilt but because it's Ricky Gervais and he's not doing David Brent we're told it's no good. There's a great story. Great Acting and a Great film.

30 out of 100  Funny moments
Eamon from Meath, 03 Sep 2010
There is really nothing special or different here. A few funny moments and the characters are all likeable enough, but it never really sparks.

35 out of 100  Predictable Feel Good a la Gervais
Tom from Galway, 20 Jan 2011
A watchable enough film from Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. Nothing ground breaking.

15 out of 100  Didn't like it
Nuala from Dublin, 02 May 2012
It’s very rarely that I rant a film and don’t watch it to the end but this is one. Yes it has some very claver lines and yes it’s a good idea but it just doesn’t work, mainly because it tries too hard and I mean way to hard. Sometimes things can be too funny for their own good and it ends up its own backside!!!

35 out of 100  Unusual / good movie
Rachel from Dublin, 16 Aug 2011
Wasn't sure what to expect - thought it would be a comedy with Ricky Gervais in it. But it's more a social commentary looking at young people's desire to get away from their home towns. Could be the same story told in Ireland, the UK or US! Enjoyable and unusual movie. Would recommend.

30 out of 100  Watchable
Conor from Louth, 19 Nov 2010
A throwback to 1970s Britain, flares, working class families, shady door to door insurance salesmen. Its all very watchable with a decent script and some likable performances. But not a lot really happens to be honest.

35 out of 100  One scene
Emma from Dublin, 16 Apr 2011
Fast forward until the disgruntled friend dances in the nightclub in slow motion, then eject and remember the scene forever with a glass of red and your imagination...
