Le Donk & Scor-zay-zee
Shane Meadows' improvised, low-budget comedy follows the titular characters, embittered roadie Le Donk (Paddy Considine) and aspiring rapper Scorz-ayz-ee (Dean Palinczuk), as they hit the road in an effort to get the latter a guest slot at an upcoming Arctic Monkeys concert. Fifteen years ago Le Donk was on top of the world; these days he's struggling just to claw his way up though the dirt. Scorz-ayz-ee knows he could break big if he could just make the right connections. This trip could change both of their lives forever.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The gags are either too inside, lazily paced, or simply not funny."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"Affable yet thoroughly forgettable..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The film has about as much sense of structure as - well, as Thirst, but I laughed a fair bit."
‑ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
"Jaw-bustingly funny stuff, uproarious, delightful and unexpectedly touching, containing more laugh-out-loud moments than most Hollywood comedies twice the length."
‑ Ali Catterall, Film4
"A warm and improvised comedy that will appeal to anyone with a penchant for jokes about Beth Ditto."
‑ Sukhdev Sandhu, Daily Telegraph
"An endearing effort with enough heart to fill the gaps where the gags dry up or fall flat."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"Think Spinal Rap. A likeable and sporadically funny film, it's rather slight for a theatrical release."
‑ Cosmo Landesman, Sunday Times (UK)
"Some British film-makers never give up and Shane Meadows is one of them. He'd make a movie of a custard pie if he could. And generally there's entertainment to be had from even his most hand-to-mouth efforts."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"Considine's performance, for instance, is an enthralling piece of improvisation that carries the entire movie."
‑ Kevin Maher, Times [UK]
"Largely improvised and inevitably a little rambling and loosely structured but there are some genuinely funny moments along the way."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"A fun five day feature from one of Britain's finest filmmakers."
‑ Laurence Boyce, Little White Lies
"Considine is outrageously funny and never steps out of character, but the film hardly adds up to an evening's entertainment."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"A monumental mockumentary from Brit cinema's premier director/actor double act. True, daft, emotional, hilarious."
‑ Nev Pierce, Empire Magazine
"The film is slight, but there's enough there for Meadows to create a plausible narrative arc with solid laughs along the way."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Shane Meadows's movies are always brimming full of originality and verve and Le Donk & Scor-zay-zee is arguably his most daring effort so far."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
