Its a bank holiday weekend so why not enjoy some of the great events going on this weekend.
21 & Over (15) is a coming of age film that will warm hearts along with making you laugh. Jeff Chang (Justin Chon) has just turned 21, however birthday plans are put on hold as his father has organised an interview for medical school the next day. This does not stop friends Miller (Miles Teller) and Casey (Skylar Astin) persuading Jeff to go out for a few drinks on the town before an early night. However after a lot of drinks Jeff is paralytic and madness ensues, culminating in a misadventure when the friends try and get home. 21 & Over is full of laughs, putting a comedic spin on your first night being able to drink.
