About the Film
Brent is back! Twelve years on from the BBC mockumentary ‘The Office’ David Brent is now a travelling salesman with Lavichem, a cleaning and ladies’ personal hygiene products company. However, he hasn’t given up on his dream of rock stardom and is about to embark on a self-financed UK tour with his band, ‘Foregone Conclusion’. Assembling a group of session musicians who are just in it for the money, and talented rapper Dom (Ben Bailey Smith) in an attempt to gain street cred, Brent cashes in his pensions and takes unpaid leave in a bid to turn his dream into reality. Get ready to join David Brent on the road as he takes one last shot at fame and fortune.
Not a One Hit Wonder
When it's good this is as good as The Office at its best, but the longer format does make it feel a little laboured at times. That being said the comedy is still of a high calibre, great moments where you laugh and cringe simultaneously, the style Gervais has perfected.
I felt the absence of characters from The Office (even though I appreciate they had no place here) as the vast majority of the funny bits come only from Brent, whereas on TV some of my favourite moments come from the interplay with Tim and Gareth et al.
Still, this a worthy addition to the Brent legacy, hasn't done the character any harm and fans of the TV show should enjoy this

We love this spin off from the office!- last night was our 3rd time seeing it at the cinema since its release last Friday!
We also attended the premiere in London- but unfortunately was to see the stars on the red carpet and not see the movie 😩
Fans of the office and Ricky Gervais will not be disappointed- just hope it's not another 10 or so years before his next return!
One disappointment was the Freelove freeway version used in this movie and soundtrack- the original was much better!
Me and my wife went to cinema last week and enjoyed the film so much. I even pre-order to see the film again. We laugh so much and recommend for everyone to go out and watch the movie. 10/10
