Doesn't everybody have a friend like Gary King? Charismatic, cool, invincible...or so it seems at 18. Twenty years on, Gary (Simon Pegg), still wearing his Matrix-y coat and skull rings, is not so much cool as desperate. He's guilted his estranged pals(Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan) into recapturing the remembered magic of their last day of school. Can they complete the Golden Mile, downing a pint in each of 12 pubs in the suburban hamlet of Newton Haven to the bitter (or lager) end? Pegg and writer-director Edgar Wright, auteurs of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, complete their trilogy, plunging regular blokes behind the seemingly placid exterior of the country village into adventure. Some reviewers chide the right angle turn the plot takes midway, but Pegg, Wright and Frost (known celebrators of nerdish preoccupations) make this heartfelt and imaginative pub crawl a smart comedy delight.
