Film of the day: The World’s End

The World's End

Everyone has a mate who just refuses to grow up and insists that any reminiscence be done over many pints or glasses of wine – decades after it ceased to be fun. Gary King (Simon Pegg) is that man and he’s hellbent on dragging childhood friends Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman and Eddie Marsan along the ‘golden mile’ – a pub crawl of local lore that they failed to complete in their youth.

Unfortunately, when the childhood chums meet up to begin their night on the tiles, they begin to notice the locals aren’t quite like they used to be.

A brilliantly silly salute to the Great British tradition of the pub crawl that has lots of good dialogue and fun.

The World’s End- Saturday 9.00pm on Channel 4.
