There are highs and lows here, with a fair amount of shoe leather required before you get to the good stuff. Pretty much like a real festival, appropriately enough.

Not exactly groundbreaking comedy, but Morris clearly knows his youthful audience demographic well, playing on their hang-ups as much as their aspirations.

The Festival's pursuit remains broadly likable, and Morris again backs it up with real comedy nous.

The main insight provided here is that festival going is a mixture of heaven and hell.
