Was there a single likeable character in this film? **Spoilers**
I enjoyed the film but it struck me as I was watching it that I didn't like any of the characters. At a push, perhaps Danny had some redeeming qualities but (for me) he was the best of a bad bunch.
Charlie was pretty spineless for the most part and spent the majority of his time sulking, although standing up to Mick in the end was commendable. Leo was an ass, as evidenced by the way he behaved with the key and the girls in the group were almost as guilty by their failure to challenge him (their attempts before Mick assaults Leo seem cursory at best). Mary was quite happy to string Charlie along and although I can't blame her for breaking up with Mick, her dismissive tone ("I had fun but I have to write my paper now") makes it difficult to feel any sympathy for her. Danny was harbouring a fugitive and made Charlie guilty by association but as misguided as his loyalty was, at least it was honourable (he called the police himself when he realised Mick was lying to him). Mick, well that goes without saying...
It seems incongruous that I should like a film when I didn't like the characters, but I suppose this film is more than than the sum of it's parts.
