| My 322nd Review: Empty vessels make most noise...
The Shouting Men is a comedy that tries to be a classic British working class slice of life comedy but is full of characters that are pretty much caricatures. The only words we could think of to describe this is weak - it is an an uneasy mix of weak comedy and caricatures of people that wouldn't possibly be real.

The plot of a bus load of supporters sharing a min-bus(Completely demographic: Race, Age, Gender, Disability: all boxes ticked; and I started to feel like I was being manipulated (and doing community service)) is fairly tragic, and whiles there's some good thinking, the script is way too frantic and way way too maudlin and truly lacks definition.

This would have worked so much better as a buddy movie - there are way too many characters and it just falls flat trying to juggle all the story lines. If the two main characters has had a road trip and met these people along the way it might just have been watchable - but then again...(I may be on my own here, as I write this it's got 16 votes and 8.2, so what do I know?)

All in all, a crashing disappointment, very few laughs, the drama is very heavy-handed, and worse, blatantly manipulative, and is massively guilty of being unable to find either its real heart or the heart of the beautiful game.
