Movie review score

What’s it about?
Four high school mates are reluctantly dragged back to their home town by their former ringleader to re-create a night of drinking excess. And then robots happen. Except they aren’t robots.

What did we think?
Elizabeth says: The final installment in Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright’s Cornetto trilogy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) has all the laughs and offbeat comedy you expect from this duo, served with a hefty dollop of emotional resonance I wasn’t expecting.  A movie about dudes battling pseudo-robots (they’re roboty aliens who really don’t like to be called robots, see) that’s actually super relatable? That’s a win in my book.
