Blog: Film fodder

Catherine Sleep | 27 September 2004

Went to the cinema last night to see ‘Wimbledon: The Movie’ and as ever it struck me just now nutritionally poor the food offering at cinemas is. Popcorn buckets come in just three sizes: massive, super-massive and ridiculously massive, and other than that you’ve a choice of family-sized packs of confectionery and chocolate or a rather unpleasant looking Hot Dog. Where the basket of fruit? Where the muesli bars?

The film wasn’t great either. It's pitiful really - these days we're so desperate to see a Brit win Wimbledon that we've resorted to making a slushbuster about it. The disastrously miscast Kirsten Dunst pouts and giggles her way through a role with no depth whatsoever while Paul Bettany plays Hugh Grant playing himself. Don’t bother.
