Movie Info

ChickLit is a comedy drama about four guys trying to save their local pub from closing down. They group write a chick lit, or more specifically a 'mummy porn' novel in the style of 'Fifty Shades of Grey' and it gets snapped up. The only snag is that the publisher insists that the young woman 'author' does press and publicity. The guys have to keep their involvement a secret and so engage an out of work actress to 'role play' the part of the author. This leads to her becoming the star in the film of the book, the tables are turned on the guys and she is in control - leaving them with the awful prospect of having to secretly churn out sex novels for the foreseeable future.

Critic Reviews for ChickLit

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

ChickLit will possibly be remembered as the moment when the low-budget Britcom genre hit bottom.

October 10, 2016 | Rating: 0/5 | Full Review…

The tittering, self-conscious "aren't we naughty?" tone makes you want to drive a bulldozer straight through the blasted pub and its wretched clientele.

September 4, 2016 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

We get little sense of what the four authors are actually writing about other than that their prose is very purple.

September 1, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

All the cultural references are weirdly strained and off-target.

September 1, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The film is amiable and pleasant, though the denouement unravels rather too quickly.

February 19, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The comedy amounts to a succession of duff innuendos, often lost in the erratic sound mix, occasionally botched altogether by supporting players apparently sourced from Britten's bridge club.
