    The film Purely Belter was on channel 4 the other night, and as there was nowt else on I decided to watch it.

    I have seen nothing that was soooooo stereotypical, nearly sentence contained the word "man" or "like" and I lost the amount of times the word f**k was used!

    Just for the record not all geordies go on like this (well not all the time anyway)....anyone else come across anything so stereotypical about a certain region, people, etc

    Yes I know what you mean Andy...Still it can be quite funny , Have a look at the film "Twin Town " with Rhys Ifans and his brother Llyr. How Many welsh TMP'rs have seen Male Voice Choirs on mumbles pier in the middle of the night. and every Welsh person with a tear in the eye at Llanelli beating the All Blacks....
    Good to see North Walians like Rhys and Llyr taking on a role like these brothers , I would recomend this film to anyone..Blimey I sound Like Barry Norman or Johnathan Ross..
    can I apply for the Job of film reviewer for TMP?????
