Angus, thongs and perfect snogging - Georgia Groome, Kimberley Nixon, Aaron Johnson, Gurinder Chadha
Threat advisory: Elevated - Significant risk of entertaining activities
Georgia Nicolson's not going mental, but her life is.
This is the hilarious Bridget Jones-like diary of 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson (Georgia Groome), who has a rather wild cat named Angus, a 3-year-old sister who pees in her bed, and a best friend who is in love with the vegetable seller's son. Georgia discusses kissing lessons, which she needs because she has just met the "Sex God" of her dreams; what to wear to parties and school; and how to spy on your crush's girlfriend (this is where thongs come into play). In typical teen manner, Georgia lives in her own world; she thinks she is ugly, is convinced that her parents are weird, positively abhors school work and has a deep desire to be beautiful and older. Yet she still has time to enjoy the mad antics of her cat and indulge her odd but sweet sister.

I am not a 14-year-old girl. I have never been a 14-year-old girl. I will never be a 14-year-old girl. Thank god.
Angus, thongs and perfect snogging is, for those of you who are old enough to remember, the spiritual heir to Sue Townsend's The secret diary of Adrian Mole, aged 13¾. It is replete with the kind of naive angst that only a teenager can produce. It is also very funny in the way that St Trinian's isn't.
The best part of this movie is that it doesn't star the cast of Beverly Hills 90210 or any of their plastic clones. Everyone is a realistic person, even the sex gods (who are quite sexy for guys their age).
Angus, thongs and perfect snogging is a funny, British, teenage film but you don't have to be British (or even funny) to enjoy it.
The comedy, teen, UK movie Angus, thongs and perfect snogging is directed by Gurinder Chadha and stars Georgia Groome, Kimberley Nixon, Aaron Johnson.
