Sixty Six

Sixsix_3 If suffering through an ill-tempered, misery-loves-company drama/comedy about Bernie (Gregg Sulkin), a 12-year-old British Jewish boy attempting to plan his own bar mitzvah, scheduled to coincide with the World Cup Soccer tournament of 1966, sounds like a good way to spend an hour and a half—think again. Director Paul Weiland ("Made of Honor") co-wrote the tone-deaf screenplay for this cinematic abortion that features the ever-lousy Stephen Rea adding his specific brand of stench to a pasted-together movie that is predictable and boring as it is depressing. The trouble is that Gregg Sulkin gives a fine performance that gets completely tilled over.

Rated PG-13, 95 mins. (D) (One Star)
