DVD: It's a Wonderful Afterlife, For retail & rental (Icon)

Gurinda (Bend it Like Beckham) Chadha's latest comedy is a mind-numbingly pointless melange of romance, ghosts and curry-related serial-killing.

Any half-promising ideas are thrown away by a shambolic script, and the amateurish execution just makes you cringe for everyone involved. Aside from Sally Hawkins, there's almost nothing here that reaches even a basic level of competence. Isn't there a foundation film-making course Chadha can go on?
