    Trite lessons are learned. Plotlines play out in familiar arcs. A few blips of sex and drug use aim to make the movie feel more grown-up. Instead, they make it off-limits to the only age group likely to find any charm in its smug Britcom cutesiness.

    It's a shame that the film comes across like an awkward and ingratiating teenager, given that the two performances at its core are so winning.

    Albatross is the kind of movie that looks good, begins with promise, and then nosedives into deep disappointment.
