There are, surprisingly, some good British films -- ones that aren't even set during the miners strike -- and there are many naff ones: this is the naffest of the naff. Predictably manipulative.

"Billy" is pretentious and boring, plodding and formulated and any other bad term you can ponder upon.

"Billy Elliot" is every bit as cloying and smarmy as you think it's going to be. The movie is little more than a tarted up remake of "Flashdance" or "Showgirls" or any of a hundred other movies where a plucky, unschooled main character "Billy Elliot" is every bit as cloying and smarmy as you think it's going to be. The movie is little more than a tarted up remake of "Flashdance" or "Showgirls" or any of a hundred other movies where a plucky, unschooled main character tries to dance his or her way to fame. I feel less intelligent for having seen this movie. Expand
